I grew up in Nebraska City, Nebraska. I earned bachelor's degrees in Business Administration and Business Education at Peru State College. After college, I worked in a two-person branch office for a finance company.
My husband, Richard, has been with Schwan's Family of Businesses for over 30 years. His job took us to Fremont, Nebraska then Faulkton, South Dakota. We returned home to Nebraska in 1996. I started as a teller at First National Bank of Schuyler in 1997, and have held several positions in bank operations. In 2003, I was promoted to Information Technology Manager, I moved to my present position as Operations Supervisor for Homestead Bank in 2011.
Richard and I have a daughter, two sons and two daughter-in-laws. We are active in our local church where I have held several offices. I am currently the co-treasurer. My favorite activities are reading, music, movies and spending time with our children and grandchildren.
