As a former college athlete, basketball brought me to Marquette for the first time – now I’m happy to call it home! Outside of work, you’ll find me working out, enjoying the outdoors, or spending time with friends.
Here at VAST, I am a part of the Commercial Lines Team and Professional Solutions Division, working to understand the needs of our clients and provide them the best possible experience.

Born and raised in Marquette, I am proud to call this my hometown. Outside of work you’ll find me with my husband and three beautiful daughters. We enjoy hiking and biking through the woods, fishing Lake Superior, the beach, playing in the snow and anywhere in between! And when mom needs a break, you’ll find me running or on the volleyball court. At VAST I am proud to be a part of the commercial team to help meet the needs of our amazing clients.

After nearly 30 years of living in Marquette, I recently transitioned to a virtual role through a move to Grand Rapids, MI. Outside of my time with VAST I’m an avid crossfitter and enjoy pursuing improvements in fitness. Despite my physical distance from the VAST office, I’m committed to delivering an exceptional experience for our clients in the Professional Solutions Division.
