Personal Highlights

I started out in the restaurant industry when I was 15 as a prep cook. Since then I have worked every position. I graduated from Metropolitan State University with a Business Administration Degree. I am very family oriented and love spending time with my nephew and niece. I also enjoy fishing and camping with friends. I am very excited about continuing in management with Heart of America Group as I have loved working for the company these past several years.
