I am intentional about integrating a good work ethic and enthusiasm into everything I pursue. I love spending time with my three children, traveling, and making memories. We all like to cheer on the Hawks...Jayhawks and Hawkeyes! I enjoy being outdoors and I stay active by walking, running, cycling, and strength training.

I appreciate the Des Moines community and all the activities it offers. It is such a wonderful city to raise a family! I have remodeled five homes over the years, and although I have hung up my tool belt, I still enjoy tackling the occasional DIY home improvement projects.

My faith life is very integral to who I am and all my pursuits. I cherish my involvement at Saint Francis of Assisi Church with various ministries, and I love quiet time in Scripture connecting, focusing, and seeking God's direction in my life.
