“It was clear this was the career for me.”

  • Attended Franklin College and studied finance.
  • Served as a Modern Woodmen intern in my junior year.
  • Became a full-time representative upon graduation in 2014.
  • Promoted to managing partner in 2016.
  • Love the flexibility, responsibility, creativity and variety of this career.

Memorable career moment

I introduced my passion for this business to a group of about 50 students.

I’ve been a Modern Woodmen internship coordinator for the state of Indiana since February 2015 (about six months into being a full-time representative).

One of the first interns I taught attended Indiana State University. He asked if I would teach the students in his business club about what it means to be a financial advisor and what the financial planning process looks like. A number of those students have reached out to me showing interest in career opportunities with Modern Woodmen.

Planning for life

I helped a widow who was approaching retirement and was uncertain about her future.

At Modern Woodmen, I get to make an impact in the lives of members of my community each and every day.

This woman didn’t know how to access money she had accumulated from her nursing career. We were able to take an inventory of her assets and assess her risk tolerance. Then we devised a plan for her to retire while drawing a comfortable income for the rest of her life. When the time came, she retired much more comfortably than she had envisioned.
