I grew up in Winona, Minnesota. I received my undergraduate degrees at Indiana University-Bloomington (B.A. History and B.S. Music). My clients like me because I am results-oriented, and I am able to come up with practical and efficient solutions to difficult situations. My father died when I was 16, and my mom was in a very difficult financial situation as a result. Both of my parents had been business owners, but once my father passed away, my mom was not able to juggle everything. The result was financial hardship and several years of my mom working two full-time jobs simultaneously. I want to use my personal experiences to help families avoid financial losses and family discord when a loved one dies.
