Hard work is not new for me. I began working at Taco Kid in Cedar Rapids as soon as I turned 14. I have extensive business experience and have worked in private sector financial services since 1997.
Most of my career has been in the credit card processing industry at U.S. Bank (Minneapolis), Elavon (Atlanta), Fiserv (Atlanta) & currently Co-op Solutions (remote from Cedar Rapids).
Missing my family, I moved home to Cedar Rapids in 2018 after spending 31 years away.
I have traveled the world and love to experience other cultures. I am a member of Iowa Canvassing, the Cedar Rapids Curling Club and a lifelong Cubs fan. I enjoy spending time with family including my dog, Wrigley & cat, Ivy.
I am a Southeast side Cedar Rapids native and attended Grant Wood elementary, McKinley Junior High & Washington High School.
I earned a Bachelor's Degree (BA) from St. Catherine University and a Masters of Business Administration (MBA) from University of St. Thomas, both in St. Paul, Minnesota.
