Personal

My husband, Matt, and I were married in 2015 and live in Waukee with our three cats. We are blessed to have much of our family nearby, making it easy to spend time with our 7 nieces and nephews. We enjoy traveling and have been to 20 states together so far. Our favorite adventure was a road trip to the Grand Canyon. My past work experience in the field of aging cultivated my affinity for developing creative ways to streamline, simplify, and innovate complex processes and concepts. I am excited to use these skills to support Foster Group in its goal of encouraging clients in their pursuit of meaningful living and generous giving!
