I grew up in NW Iowa on a farm and farmed from 1976-1980. I graduated from Iowa State University in Ag Business. My first banking job was in Pella, Iowa from 1980-1983 as Assistant Vice President. I then worked at Citizens National Bank in Boone from 1983-1988 as an Ag Lender. From 1988 to present, I am the Senior Vice President in Ag and Commercial Lending at Boone State Bank & Trust in Boone.
While in Boone I have always been involved in the community. I have served on the following boards: Compensation committee and Condemnation Board, Boone County Endowment Board, Boone Chamber Board, Boone Hospital Foundation Board, and the Boone County Fair Board. I am currently serving on the Sacred Heart Finance committee and serving as the President of the Boone Noon Kiwanis. I have always felt it is important to give back to the community and serving as Boone County Supervisor would be a way to do that.
