Troy Darrock has been a financial advisor with Edward Jones for the last 4 years.

He grew up in San Diego, bouncing between the North County/San Diego and the Murrieta/Temecula areas.  He attended Gonzaga University in Spokane, WA and graduated with a degree in Economics.  That is where he met his wife, Kelly.  They have a 1-year-old, Wesley, who has taught him that he could survive on hardly any sleep!

Troy is a Gonzaga basketball fan and a San Diego Padres fan.  He also enjoys golf and traveling.  He has family members that were involved in Rotary, including a grandfather that was a past president of the Escondido club. He has seen the impact that they made in their communities and is looking forward to doing the same with us.
