A little about me
Born and raised in the Cedar Valley. I’ve grown to love this community. Grew up with loving, supportive & inspiring parents and was blessed to be raised with my two sisters. Spent Friday nights working in the concessions at local football games, Saturday mornings selling mini donuts at town fairs, cleaning & painting rental houses, and delivering papers. I was taught at a young age to appreciate hard work. Graduated from Northwestern College in Orange City, Iowa with a degree in psychology. Took my first real job in Chicago in the Cook County Jail teaching employability skills to inmates. With numerous trips on the "L" to and from work, I read a book that my dad gave me called "The Magic of Thinking Big". After reading this book I knew the Cook County Jail wasn’t my true calling and made the decision to move back to the Cedar Valley and seek out an opportunity to make a mark on our community. Sales sounded exciting and selling homes sounded like a rewarding experience. I hit the ground running spending almost every night knocking on doors and handing out apples stating I was "Fresh in the Business, Hire me and start packing!" I am a huge proponent of marketing and truly believe in "Obsessively Working for You!" I was blessed to meet my amazing husband on a blind date arranged by a past client. Steve and I were married a few years later and I took my first vacation, our honeymoon where I didn’t call the office every single day to check in. I love married life! We added to our family and were blessed with twins - Foster and Faith in 2015! They are miracles and a complete blessing!
