I am native of Racine, Wisconsin now living in Franklin, WI with my husband Ryan and my son, Reid. We enjoy downhill skiing on Black Diamond runs while vactioning in Colorado. Both having 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, which has led to a love of vintage cars as well as numerous motorcycles; Ryan and I try to take rides when the weather is nice. Any summer weekend, you're likely to find our family at RoadAmerica in Elkhart Lake, WI. In our spare time, we also enjoy golfing and swimming at Tuckaway Country Club.

Having just turned four, Reid keeps Ryan and I on our toes. Between starting 4K and teaching him all the fun things in life while keeping him grounded, our family is continously growing and learning something new every day. We recently added a new addition to our family, our dog Charlie.

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 Commiitee for Northwestern Mutual. I am a regular presentor at Northwestern Mutual Regional and National meetings. Educating clients and coworkers is a passion of mine.

One of my dreams is to remodel a 1957 Chevrolet Corvette convertible, starting from the frame. I would put in a modern engine and have an awesome car for summer drives.
