I also active in the Kearney Chamber as an Envoy and Co -Chair for the The Friend of Kearney Committee. I am also a very [proud member of the Resource committee for our area CASA.


I am married to my husband Josh and we have 4 kids, 3 boys and 1 girl.

I enjoy anything that means I get to spend time with my kids, my 2 youngest are HS Wrestlers and I love watching them compete. I also love a good weekend at our lake house or on the boat.
