Why I do what I do

Why I do what I do

I love people! Making an impact in my members' lives and in my community brings me great joy.

I serve members in…

the Central Ohio area, surrounding my hometown of Marion.

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

life insurance, annuities and mutual funds.

I enjoy working with…

people of all ages and backgrounds.

I attended…

Marion Technical College.

I am very proud of…

earning Sure Start stages 1-3 and the Career Development Award for high achievement during my first year with Modern Woodmen.

Before Modern Woodmen, I…

was the director of Berean Preschool and Daycare for 14 years. During that time, I came to love the way I could make an impact for the children's families. It was as if I became part of their family, helping them find solutions to balance having a career, providing for their family, and raising great kids!

I chose Modern Woodmen because…

I still get to help families determine their goals and help them put in place plans to reach their goals.

The best part of my career is…

the close relationships I have with my members. I love that we often see each other at monthly social events.

A favorite moment in my career was when…

I helped one of my former child care families plan for the future.

“The best part of my career is the close relationships I have with my members. I love that we often see each other at monthly social events.”

My life outside of work

My family includes…

my nieces and nephews. I love being "Aunt Kiki."

In my free time, you can find me…

curled up, binge-watching movies and TV shows. I also enjoy boating and snowmobiling when weather permits.

I’m passionate about…

my family and friends!

My greatest blessing is…

my family and my health.

My personal motto is…

speak the truth in love.

My hidden talent is…

I can touch the tip of my nose with my tongue!

Community impact

In the community

In the community

My local community impact

I have lived in my community…

since I was 10 weeks old!

What I like best about my community is…

that it is just the right size -- not too small and not too big.

I’m a member of…

Marion Women's Business Council, Marion Rotary Club, the Marion County Public Safety Awards Committee, and Marion County Park District Board.

My favorite volunteer activities are…

supporting and thanking veterans and their families for the sacrifices they've made for our country.

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

Matching Fund projects to raise money for those in need.

My favorite memory from a fraternal event is…

attending a pet-friendly 5K race! It was an early May morning, and the wind was bitter cold. Despite of the harsh conditions, the pets and owners were a delight, and everyone enjoyed the event. We raised funds to help a local no-kill shelter fence in the dog play area at its a new location.
