Senior Account Executive
I was born and raised in Indiana, and graduated from the Kelley School of Business at Indiana University. I was drawn to the funeral profession early in my career, and prior to joining Homesteaders I spent 15 years managing a preneed marketing organization. In that role, I helped funeral home owners and managers design plans and solutions to grow their preneed and at-need business. My wife and I have two active children and spend much of our spare time at the soccer and baseball fields. We are also avid Hoosier fans! In addition to family activities, I enjoy organizing and coordinating special charity events and fundraisers for our church, community and families in need.
I joined the Homesteaders family because of our unwavering commitment to promoting the value of funeral service, the dedication of the leadership team and the passion throughout the company for our customers. I share Homesteaders' allegiance to funeral professionals and the families they serve who count on us for secure preneed funding. Every day I am able to put my education, experience and Homesteaders resources to work, helping my funeral home customers plan and execute marketing strategies with a focus on long-term success.
I have a strong desire to listen to my customers’ needs and work closely with them to uncover their unique opportunities and challenges. Then I help them create and implement comprehensive, customized success plans that match the strengths of their firms and the needs of their communities. I’m able to use my previous experience as a preneed sales consultant and manager to serve as a resource for funeral professionals who seek new ways to grow their businesses.
