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 help create a plan based on their unique needs.

I serve members in…

South Dakota and Minnesota.

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

life insurance, annuities, mutual funds and variable annuities.

I enjoy working with…

families, those approaching retirement and small business owners.

I am very proud of…

earning President's Cabinet in 2015 and earning the Quality Award.

Before Modern Woodmen, I…

worked as a graphic designer for four years until I wanted a career change with more flexibility and room to grow.

I chose Modern Woodmen because…

I believe in the organization -- not only for how it supports members to help them reach their financial goals, but also for the way it supports my community and allows me to give back.

The best part of my career is…

helping my members. Whether it's planning for their retirement or protecting their families with life insurance, I feel good knowing I helped make a positive impact on their lives.

A favorite moment in my career was when…

I was able to help two young families with the newborn benefit. It is so tragic to lose a child in the first few months of life.

My life outside of work

My family includes…

my husband, Ryan, and four daughters, Madisyn, Ashtyn, Jaylyn and Emersyn.

In my free time, you can find me…

at my kids' activities, volunteering at the school, at the gym.

I’m passionate about…

my family and friends.

My greatest blessing is…

my husband, my kids and my career.

My personal motto is…

Always treat others how you would like to be treated.

Community impact

My local community impact

I have lived in my community…

almost my entire life.

What I like best about my community is…

the amazing people. It's home! It always has been and always will be. People genuinely care for one another and give back to make this community great.

I’m a member of…

Trinity Lutheran Church and Mitchell Chamber of Commerce.

My favorite volunteer activities are…

ones where I can help an individual or community, and ones where I can show my kids the importance of giving back.

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.


We have planted trees and flowers in the community, played bingo with assisted living residents, and placed flags on veterans' graves.
