Financial Tip:

“Whoever can be trusted with very little can also be trusted with much, and whoever is dishonest with very little will also be dishonest with much. So, if you have not been trustworthy in handling worldly wealth, who will trust you with true riches?” Luke 16:10-11

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.
