Why I do what I do

Why I do what I do

I am so blessed to be able to make a living by helping others and their communities. Each day, I sit down and help people overcome financial concerns and obstacles. I also get to help my community with our fraternal programs and activities. It’s very rewarding to be able to do what I do.

I serve members in…

central and northwest Iowa.

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

life insurance, annuities, stocks, bonds, ETFs, mutual funds and variable annuities.

I enjoy working with…

families, folks approaching retirement and local businesses.

I attended…

Northwestern College in Orange City (class of '04) and graduate school at Simpson College in Indianola.

Before Modern Woodmen, I…

worked in museums and taught middle school.

I chose Modern Woodmen because…

I've been a member since birth. I have seen what smart planning means to a family or business, and what giving back though fraternal activities means to our communities.

The best part of my career is…

being able to help my members in any way I can. Whether we're planning for retirement, designing savings/debt-cutting strategies, or using insurance to protect their families, I feel good knowing I've made an impact on their lives.

My local community impact

I have lived in my community…

for eight years.

What I like best about my community is…

how tight-knit it is. There are also so many opportunities for natural tourism and recreation! It's great to spend time with family and friends on the High Trestle Trail, exploring the Ledges, or checking foliage at the Iowa Arboretum.

I’m a member of…

Assumption Church, the Madrid Area Chamber of Commerce, the Boone Area Chamber of Commerce, the Sioux Rapids Chamber of Commerce, the Knights of Columbus, NAIFA Iowa and the Iowa Fraternal Insurance Counselors.

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.
