I live in Franklin, WI with my husband Ryan and our four-year-old son Reid.  Ryan and I graduated from Marquette University.  We enjoy cheering on the Golden Eagles basketball team. Growing up, I was part of my dad's racecar pit crew.  Any summer weekend, you're likely to find our family at Road America in Elkhart Lake, WI. We enjoy vintage cars. One of my dreams is to rebuild a 1957 Chevrolet Corvette convertible, using a modern engine. Ryan and I love to ride our motorcycles whenever we can.

Reid keeps Ryan and I on our toes. This Fall Reid started 4K at St. Alphonsus School. We are focused on teaching him all the fun things in life while keeping him grounded. Our family is continuously growing and learning something new every day. We recently added a new member to our family, our dog Charlie.

In our spare time, we enjoy golfing and swimming at Tuckaway Country Club. During the winter, we like to ski. Reid is learning to ski with us. We have a very supportive family and we enjoy spending time together. We often gather at our home to watch Green Bay Packers games, cook family dinners and celebrate each other’s special events.

I dedicate time to serve on several National Boards and Committees: The American College Alumni Board, the Women's Field Advisory Committee for Northwestern Mutual, and the PGA Committee for Northwestern Mutual. I am a regular presenter at Northwestern Mutual Regional and National meetings. Educating clients and coworkers is a passion of mine.
