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…

Illinois (Peoria, Tazewell, Fulton and McLean Counties) and Iowa.

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

life insurance and annuities.

I enjoy working with…

families, retirees, business owners and farmers.

Before Modern Woodmen, I…

was a small-business owner in the construction industry.

I chose Modern Woodmen because…

it is a solid organization that exists to bring families and communities together.

The best part of my career is…

helping my members meet their financial goals and prepare for the unexpected.

A favorite moment in my career was when…

I saw a plan that I had discussed with a particular family provide financial stability following the heartbreaking death of a spouse. In a time of great grieving, they had the peace of mind that comes from knowing they would be able to maintain their way of life and their financial obligations would still be met.

“The best part of my career is helping my members meet their financial goals and prepare for the unexpected.”
