Who I Am

I am an Iowa native and graduated from Stevens College with a degree in Marketing. I’ve spent the majority of my career in the health insurance industry in a variety of positions with companies such as Wellmark and Principal Financial Group.

I married Kory Frederick in the fall of 2013 and am now a stepmother to his daughter who lives with her family in Virginia. We also have a very spry English Jack Russell who keeps us entertained. I’m a certified Scuba Diver and enjoy anything water related. I also collect vintage clothing and jewelry. Kory and I stay busy attending art festivals, concerts and special events here in Des Moines. Oh, I forgot to mention - I LOVE the Iowa State Fair!

Why I Joined Homesteaders

As a participant in Homesteaders continuing education classes for many years, I have come to know many in the Homesteaders “family” including the funeral directors we serve. The classes helped me understand the importance of preneed, not just from the funeral director’s perspective but also from the perspective of the families you serve. Homesteaders has a long-standing reputation for being stellar in values and a leader in the preneed market.

I am thrilled to join a compassionate company where I feel valued as an individual. I am allowed to work in an environment where providing superior service to our funeral home customers and the families you serve is the number one priority.

What I Do

As a home office account executive, I get to work with funeral home customers across the country! I see myself as a support system, but also as a “coach” who takes the time to learn your challenges and goals so I can help you develop your business and achieve your goals. You can count on me to be there whether you need help completing an application or want to put together a marketing plan to grow your business and increase community awareness. I look forward to getting to know you, to learning about your business and to creating strategies that will make our partnership a success!
