Your Financial Plan

As a Financial representative at Northwestern Mutual, I enjoy the relationships I get to make every day. Taking these relationships from the ground up turns once strangers into best friends, which is a powerful experience. I come to work every day because of the impact I can make in the lives of my clients and their families. Watching and guiding life changes that enable clients to build their dream home, save for their children’s college funds, or become part of a succession plan in their family business are all things that motivate me to care about each individual. I began here as an intern, but I stay because the culture is about family and putting clients first. These are beliefs I hold true since my family is the most important thing in my life, and challenging my clients to think differently to prioritize their families is something that I know I would want for myself.


I began with Northwestern Mutual in April of 2012. Since then, I have stepped into a leadership position coaching and mentoring new interns. Being able to give back and help young members of our team through the fears of being new to the business is incredibly rewarding. I hold my series 6 and 63 certifications and am actively pursuing my CLU. As an intern, I was top 75 in the nation and won the NAIFA quality award for 2017.


In my time out of the office, I love to hunt and fish. Getting out on the golf course at any opportunity is something I enjoy, as well as watching Husker football and supporting Wesleyan athletics and introducing sports to my son, Carter, who is three and a half. He, my wife Alyssa, and I visit my family in Franklin, Nebraska regularly for trips to the lake.


In support of the recent hurricanes, Northwestern Mutual funded the American Red Cross' Disaster Responder $250,000 to directly support disaster relief activities, including volunteer training, equipment transportation and storage, and providing food, shelter, supplies and medical and emotional support. Join us and donate here

The Northwestern Mutual Difference

Backed by the strength of Northwestern Mutual, my team and I provide you with a balanced approach to achieving your goal of financial security, assuring that your intentions have been understood and your needs are being addressed. And when it comes to implementing solutions, the full capabilities of Northwestern Mutual are leveraged to provide you with exclusive access to a comprehensive variety of products and services.


Home is where the greatest moments are shared and where the most valuable and meaningful memories are made. But sometimes, life happens. From technology and social media to work-life imbalance to competing schedules, families can struggle to be present and connect on a more personal level at home.

This fall, Northwestern Mutual wants families to find that connection at home again. Parents can submit a video or photo of their kid's ultimate home experience inspiration — the bigger, the more out-of-the-box, and the more imaginative the ideas, the better — and we may just ring your doorbell to make your dream a reality!
