Raised on an Iowa farm, I took an early interest in savings and investing, opening my first accounts when I was in the sixth grade. That interest became a strength as I earned degrees from Drake University in Finance, Accounting and Marketing, while serving as captain of Drake’s NCAA women’s volleyball team.
My upbringing, college experience and sports involvement taught me about hard work and leadership, landing me an internship at Merrill Lynch, and then in the Leadership Development Program at Principal.
My strength is now a passion as I work to encourage, empower and inspire clients. When it comes to finances, my job is to be like bumpers in the bowling alley. I’m here to keep errant balls in play and out of the gutter. It’s not about scoring a perfect game. It’s about making progress.
I’m married to Luke and we have three children. We’re HGTV junkies, spending our limited free time renovating old homes. We also love to travel on a shoestring budget.
