While attending Marquette University, I joined Northwestern Mutual as a College Financial Representative in the spring of 2009. During my time in the internship, I realized my passion for helping people achieve their goals and dreams. As a College Financial Representative, I was a Target 20 and Power of 10 qualifier, which recognizes some of the top interns throughout the country.  During both of my internship years, the Holter Agency's internship was recognized as one of the top ten agencies in the nation. Upon graduation, I converted to a full-time Financial Representative after test driving the career in the internship program. Since my conversion, I have achieved Pacesetter First 40 and was invited into the Leadership Development Program, and have spent six years developing College Financial Representatives as a College Unit Director. Every day, I try to make an impact in my community by helping my clients attain what is most important to them.

I'm also a member of the National Association of Insurance and Financial Advisors (NAIFA). Founded in 1890 as The National Association of Life Underwriters (NALU), NAIFA is one of the nation’s oldest and largest associations representing the interests of insurance professionals from every Congressional district in the United States. NAIFA members assist consumers by focusing their practices on one or more of the following: life insurance and annuities, health insurance and employee benefits, multi line, and financial advising and investments. NAIFA’s mission is to advocate for a positive legislative and regulatory environment, enhance business and professional skills, and promote the ethical conduct of its members.
