Director of People and Culture

I was born in Colorado and raised in small town Iowa. I fell in love with Des Moines after moving here over 20 years ago! My husband, Mike, and I have three amazing and active kids: Kylie, Blake, and Mia. As a family, we love to travel, bike, brunch, explore Des Moines, and spend time with our family and friends.
