My love for the Northland came as a child with my days filled with family and friends swimming, boating, fishing and sitting around the campfire sharing stories. For over 30 years my career has been in sales and marketing. 25 years of my career was spent as a District Manager in sales and store operations. This position took me across the Northern half of the United states working in communities large and small. I met so many wonderful people and really saw the love of community and neighborhoods in all of these markets. As part of the community in the Brainerd Lakes Area I share my expertise, compassion for others, and love of community as a board member and in-coming President of the Brainerd Lakes Sunrise Rotary Club. So many great things come out of giving of time through community service.
