I have a curious and overactive mind, often observing the world from unconventional angles. My imaginative mind comes in handy in my job as a marketer and writer.

In my spare time, I enjoy walking on the trails around Polk City, hiking, bass fishing, playing racquetball, and reading. I find great joy in volunteering, serving on boards, leading Bible studies, writing, and mentoring young moms. I am married to my soul mate and husband, Dean, and we have two adult sons who live in the Des Moines area.
