I am constantly encouraged by our firm’s commitment to positive life change, whether it is for our clients or our team members. This manifests itself not only financially, but also influences how we all live our lives.

When not working for the Foster Group team, I am busy with my “home team,” which includes my wonderful wife, Shannon, and three young children, Emma, Beau, and Stella. I enjoy the outdoors, its different pace and the life experiences that can only be learned from participating in it. Whether it’s through hunting, fishing, or archery, I always welcome opportunities to introduce others to Iowa’s great outdoors.
