Personal

I grew up in Des Moines and, after living in Nebraska for a few years, my husband and I moved back home to Des Moines. We love playing cribbage, drinking tea, and going on family walks around our neighborhood. We have one daughter, with another baby on the way! My favorite way to vacation is to relax on the beach with a good book and lots of snacks. I also enjoy volunteering at my church as a Wedding Coordinator, to help couples organize and enjoy their wedding day.

My background in education gives me a unique perspective on collaborating with others to work toward a common goal, and I’m thankful that I am able to bring my past skills and experiences to the Client Service Team. I am so grateful to be part of Foster Group and use my analytical and organizational abilities to serve our wonderful clients.
