Who I am

I have worked in life insurance and banking for my entire career, which has helped me establish a strong understanding of solutions that can help businesses grow. Prior to joining the Homesteaders Account Executive team in 2019, I was a Homesteaders Customer Service Representative for more than five years.

I live in Adel, Iowa, and enjoy spending time with friends and my family, which includes my wife, Tracy, three children and three grandchildren. I also like to go camping, watch football and volunteer at the Dallas County Fairgrounds.


Why I joined Homesteaders

I joined Homesteaders because of the outstanding reputation it has built and because it has been around for more than a century. At Homesteaders, we have a family-oriented culture and are consistently recognized as a top workplace.

I decided to become an account executive because I wanted to work more closely with funeral professionals. I enjoyed working with firms during my years as a customer service representative, and wanted an opportunity to further develop relationships with them.

What I do

I work alongside funeral professionals to create customized success plans that match the strengths of their firms and the needs of their communities. Because of my previous role on the Customer Service team, I'm knowledgeable about Homesteaders’ resources and how to implement them effectively.

I’m excited to continue to build good working relationships with the funeral home customers I serve. I’m committed to earning your trust and helping you make a difference in your communities.
