The thing that drives me most are relationships. I don’t want just passing interactions, I want to get to know who people are, their history, what they’re passionate about and then make connections to how their make-up relates to their needs. My hope is that each person I encounter feels genuinely valued and cared for, whether in brief interaction or deeper relationship.
I grew up in Kearney, NE, where I met and married the love of my life, Matt. We have 3 delightful kids together- Sam, Josie and Stella, and our Husky-Lab mix, Rory. My favorite time is spent with them, particularly exploring in nature and traveling, both within the U.S. and internationally. I am especially drawn to water, in both frozen and liquid form; I love sledding with my family, snow-skiing, ice-skating, waterskiing, kayaking, open water swimming… the list doesn’t end! I like to grow personally and challenge myself in work and play. A goal of mine is to learn to sail- yes, in land-locked Nebraska!
