With 6 years of dedicated experience in the banking sector and a robust background of over two decades immersed in Agriculture, I proudly serve as a Commercial/Ag Lender at Sterling Federal. My roots run deep in the Sauk Valley area, where I was born and raised, nurtured my family, and now relish the joys of witnessing my grandchildren’s growth.

Beyond my professional pursuits, our family also engages in farming in the Lee County area, which brings me immense fulfillment. Contributing to our agricultural endeavors is more than a passion; it’s a way of life that provides me with valuable insights into the unique needs of our farming community.

My commitment as a lender extends beyond the office; it’s about fostering a genuine small-town community experience for my customers. Having grown up and thrived in this region, I understand the importance of a familiar face and trust in the financial landscape. I look forward to not only being a lender but also a friendly, reliable presence that our customers can rely on with ease and confidence.
