Executive Administrative Assistant




I was born and raised in Omaha, Nebraska.  My career started at Bland & Associates, P.C., an accounting firm, where I worked for 10 years.  I started out as the receptionist and worked my way through several positions ending as their Firm Administrator and served as the Secretary/Treasurer of the firm and a member of management.

My family and I moved to Iowa in 2005. I was employed by two accounting firms after I arrived and most recently was the Office Manager at Gardiner Thomsen for ten years.  I’ve served in an array of administrative positions and hope to be an asset to Advocacy Strategies utilizing my skillset.

I have four beautiful, amazing girls, Makaela, Morgan, Malany and Mandy.  Our family is always on the go and we enjoy playing cards at Smokey Row, outside recreational activities such as swimming, canoeing, walking and enjoying time spent with family and friends.
