“I grew up in the countryside among farmers and worked on job sites all over Southwest Wisconsin. I understand the residents and people that can benefit from belonging to our credit union. I, like many, had to borrow money to attend college. It motivated me to work hard and finish what I started. Serving on the board will allow me to assist in shaping policy that will directly impact those in the community. My goal is to help Heartland Credit Union members flourish through education and guidance. I want to give back in a meaningful way and serving on the board will give me the opportunity to do the most good with my unique skill set and work experience.”
