My Background and What Brought Me Here
I graduated from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln with a Bachelor of Science in Home Economics with an emphasis in Financial Advising. My professional career started at a bank in Lincoln, Nebraska working in residential and consumer lending. After college and getting married we decided to move back home, to Northeast Nebraska, our families and small-town life.
Relocating gave me the perfect opportunity to seek a position outside of banking. My career in the investment industry began in August 1996 as a wire operator. The industry, my positions and my responsibilities have changed and evolved over the last 24+ years. Through all those changes I have learned that I can work independently, but enjoy being part of a team, which was one of the reasons I joined Sterk Financial.
Why I Chose This Profession
I am a detailed-oriented person, who enjoys projects, process and structure, as well as people and variety. All of these are found in this industry.
When Not in the Office, Look for Me
On the bleachers or in a lawn chair cheering at a baseball diamond, football field, basketball gym, running track or in the Fine Arts building supporting our children’s events.
Outside of work, I am most passionate about
My boys, family and friends. We love to go camping, fishing, and play on the lake.
