I am from Iowa, went to the University of Northern Iowa, and have had several jobs and life experiences that led me to this career. It is not just a job to me, it is a ministry to serve others and help others feel confident that they have trustworthy help with insurance and investment services that are a fit for their unique needs. I am married, have two children, attend First Lutheran Church, am on the board with Youth for Christ in Cedar Rapids, and serve my members with the utmost care and consideration. It gives me the most satisfaction after plans are in place, to help my members boost generosity with Thrivent's amazing benefits. I am very involved in my member's passions and generosity efforts and with amazing non-profits in our area and internationally.
