I graduated from Northeast Missouri State University in Kirksville, Missouri in May of 1979 and began my career as a bank examiner for the State of Iowa. My wife, Roxie and I moved to Mapleton in 1985 to begin our family and employment at Valley Bank & Trust as a lending and trust officer.  In 1987 I earned my salesman license and became the managing broker of Valley Realty in 1995.  I continue to be active in the community serving as the past chair of the Maple Valley Development, Inc.’s Housing Committee, a Monona County Enterprise Zone Director, and have been an elected Director of Western Iowa Tech Community College since 1998. I sell all types of properties, specializing in Mapleton real estate. With a broad knowledge of financing and numerous contacts, I will make the real estate transaction, for both the buyer and seller, honest, transparent, and understandable while handling most of the details on your behalf.

I have been a life long resident of the Mapleton area when I returned to farming after being activated in the National Guard.  In addition to my full-time farming east of Mapleton, I became an auctioneer in 1977 and joined Valley Realty in 1988 when I became a licensed real estate salesman.  I have many contacts in the community due to many associations in community and trade organizations.  Contact me at 712-880-7000.

I grew up on a farm outside of Danbury and was raised in Danbury and have recently moved to Battle Creek. I graduated from Briar Cliff University in 2007 with a Business Marketing Degree and have worked at Valley Bank ever since. I do a little bit of everything at the bank and I am now licensed to sell real estate as well as crop insurance. My husband Dylan and I live on a farm right outside of Battle Creek. We have a son, Cade and a daughter, Taytum. In my free time I enjoy helping my husband Dylan on the farm, watching our son play sports, and spending time with family and friends.
