I’m a graduate of the University of Northern Iowa where I earned my degree in Political Communication. My first job after graduation was serving as Public Liaison to Iowa Governor Terry Branstad, the longest serving governor in U.S. history. I have more than a decade of public relations experience working with elected officials, political candidates, small business owners, and nonprofits. Most recently, I served as a communications director in the United States House of Representatives where I worked alongside some of the nation’s top leaders and built great working relationships with the national press corps.
For fun, I love to to travel, especially to Denmark. I’ve remained close with a Danish foreign exchange student from high school and have visited him and his family every other year since 2008.
I’m also an avid tennis player, and enjoy reading about U.S. history. The thing I’m most proud of in life, however, is being an Iowan! I’ve been blessed to travel around the world but nothing compares to America’s heartland. The 1989 film, Field of Dreams, said it best: “Is this heaven? No, it’s Iowa!”
