I grew up in Southern MN, am married, and have 2 children. I am a graduate of St. Olaf College and attended the University of Minnesota Law School and Carlson School of Business. After spending 30 years in the insurance industry, the last 7 as Vice President and COO, my family and I retired to our lake home in Hayward, WI. Finding a need to stay active in business, I obtained my real estate sales/broker's license and joined Area North Realty in 2000. As a Realtor with one of the largest and busiest real estate companies in NW Wisconsin, I still find time to enjoy the beautiful Hayward Lakes area fishing, skiing, and playing golf.
