Personal Trust Officer
Hometown: Pierre, SD
Education: Southwest Minnesota State University
I spent my first 15 years with FNB as a Senior Internal Auditor before joining the First National Wealth Management team in 2019. Since then, I’ve enjoyed getting to know clients and helping them find solutions to achieve their financial goals.
As a Personal Trust Officer, I hold a Chartered Fiduciary and Investment Risk Specialist designation and a Certified Trust and Fiduciary Advisor designation.
Prior to my nearly 20 years at First National, I earned a degree in accounting from SMSU and worked for The Schwan Food Company.
But I was looking for that feeling of family that both South Dakota and FNB are famous for, and I’m happy to say that I found a second family with this great organization.
As far as my first family goes, my husband, Josh, and I are the proud parents of two daughters. When I’m not spending time with them, I love baking oatmeal chocolate chip cookies and reading; my favorite books are Educated by Tara Westover and the Harry Potter series!
For volunteer activities, you can usually find me in a classroom of some sort: teaching Sunday school, volunteering for Junior Achievement, or helping out at my kids’ schools.
