Who I am

I grew up on a dairy farm in Darlington, WI, and have lived in Iowa since moving here when I was 12. I began my career at Homesteaders as a Customer Service Representative, and became part of the Home Office account executive team in 2019. My professional experience includes many years in the insurance business, during which I’ve developed my knowledge and skills to help customers succeed.

I’m part of a large family that includes my four brothers, 11 nieces/nephews and six great-nieces/great-nephews. In addition to spending time with my family, I love to shoot pool, camp and fish.

Why I joined Homesteaders

One of my friends referred me to Homesteaders, and I was very impressed to learn how long the company has been in business and how happy employees are to work here. After speaking with employees and hearing about their passion for what we do, there was no way I could not be excited to join the Homesteaders family!

What I do

I leverage my upbeat attitude and experience as a Customer Service Representative to help funeral home customers achieve success. I'm a great listener and a compassionate, empathetic professional, and those strengths allow me to work alongside funeral professionals to develop business plans to help you meet your goals.
