Personal Trust Officer
Hometown: Lennox, SD
Education: University of South Dakota
I joined the Bank shortly after graduating from USD with a joint JD/MBA in 2015. Originally, I wanted to work in compliance and risk management, so I began my career as a Fiduciary Risk Specialist.
However, working at First National Wealth Management unlocked my true passion for serving clients, so I made the switch to Personal Trust Officer after about three years.
My favorite part of my job is helping others identify their needs and achieve their financial goals — but a close second is collaborating with my dedicated and supportive FNB teammates!
At home, my support system consists of my wife since 2012, Deanna, and our two children, Lillian and James; an honorable mention goes out to my two dogs and one cat.
When I’m not cheering on the Minnesota Vikings and Minnesota Wild, you can find me partaking in a number of hobbies: binging the occasional reality TV show, running, weightlifting, playing video games, skateboarding, and juggling.
I also like to volunteer my free time as a youth leader at my church. On top of that — thanks to the Bank’s generous VTO program — I practice Stewardship by participating in Rake the Town every year.
