Why I do what I do

Why I do what I do

I’m passionate about helping my members determine their financial goals. We work together to create a plan based on their unique needs.

I serve members in…

northeast Iowa, including Independence, Winthrop, Waterloo, Cedar Falls, Oelwein, Cedar Rapids and surrounding areas.

I can help you plan for life using a variety of tools, including…

life insurance, annuities, mutual funds and variable annuities.

Before Modern Woodmen, I…

worked with Four Oaks Organization, a nonprofit built to help troubled teenagers. I worked there for six years before joining Modern Woodmen full time. While working at Four Oaks, I also worked as a district agent for Modern Woodmen.

I chose Modern Woodmen because…

I enjoy helping others. I like the fraternal benefits of the organization, and I'm happy to help clients plan for their financial future. I also enjoy the many ways Modern Woodmen of America helps me give back to my community through fraternal benefits.

My local community impact

I have lived in my community…

my entire life. I was born and raised in Independence.

What I like best about my community is…

the way the community comes together in time of need. It's also home to me and my family. It's a small community, so no one is a stranger. The number of community events that take place to get community members involved gives me a great opportunity to give back!

It’s very important to me to support my community. My favorite Modern Woodmen programs are:

chapter events to meet new people and interact more with clients, and also Matching Fund projects to help those in need. I also enjoy educating others about our youth educational programs.
