Senior Account Executive
I am the type of person who will go above and beyond to help anyone in need. My background is in business - I earned a bachelor’s degree in business administration. I have four children, and have called Toledo, Ohio my home for more than 40 years. When I’m not working, I enjoy spending time with my significant other, Amy, gardening (I’m a member of the Ohio Master Gardeners) and landscaping.
I started at Homesteaders in 1997. My primary reason for joining Homesteaders was that I knew funeral directors are some of the finest people in the world. I now work with them every day to help them reach their goals for their businesses. The support I’ve received from my colleagues at Homesteaders has been incredible. I’m proud to have been honored with numerous sales awards for my work with Homesteaders customers, including the Graham J. Cook Account Executive of the Year Award and the Daniel M. Voecks Award for highest annual volume. Most importantly, I truly enjoy working with funeral service professionals.
As an account executive, I help funeral homes educate their client families on the importance of advance funeral planning. I also work in partnership with the funeral homes I serve to increase understanding of the value of full funeral service. I firmly believe in preplanning as a way to build relationships with client families and, at the same time, help provide a solid future for funeral homes.
