BMO Harris Bank
I was born and raised in Watertown. Growing up, I was active with my church youth group and with school choir since 5th grade. I attended Watertown High School and was in various vocal groups, including the Show Choir and Carolers.
My first job was on my parent’s farm growing up, where I helped with all aspects of farm work including milking cows, animal care, and field work. My first off-farm job was at Farm & Fleet in town and worked all through college while attending UW-Whitewater, where I earned my Bachelor's in Business Administration. During college, I completed my college internship for management at Farm & Fleet.
After college I moved to Tucson, Arizona, where I lived for 10 years before I moved back to Wisconsin. I began working for M&I Bank/BMO Harris Bank shortly after I returned home. I was a Senior Personal Banker in the Lake Country area for several years and was active in the Lake Country community through various Hartland Chamber events. In 2014, I accepted a promotion which brought me back to Watertown as a Portfolio Manager for the Agriculture Banking division of BMO.
My husband, Mike, and I live in Watertown. We have two cats (Gizmo and Ivan) that are a constant source of entertainment for us. I enjoy gardening (it must be the farm kid in me) so we have a large garden area in our back yard that keeps me busy when the weather is nice. I also enjoy fishing, walking/hiking, and I still sing when I get the opportunity.
