I was born and raised in Rockford, IL. After graduating from Iowa State, I moved to Des Moines where I met my fiancé, Anna. We are foodies so when we aren’t planning the wedding, you can find us trying out the newest restaurant in town. In the summer months, we enjoy relaxing at Lake Okoboji. We also love working on our home and spending time with our energetic Corgi, Penny.

My interest in finance and investments started at a young age. When I was 10 years old, my grandfather opened a Vanguard “Young Investors” account for me. He showed me how to use the newspaper to see the investment performance of my fund, and this sparked my interest in investments. At Foster Group, I make sure that the way we invest for our clients aligns with their goals and are consistent with Foster Group’s investment philosophy. I could not be more humbled to be part of an organization that truly puts clients’ needs first, no matter the cost.
