I grew up in Southeast Minnesota. My family has history in Wisconsin, so I studied Forest Management at UW-Stevens Point and have worked in this state ever since. A career in forestry was a natural fit for me. I enjoy the unique challenges and varied work conditions that this profession offers. Earning a living outdoors is a privilege!

What I like about Ashland County: There is a lot to like about Ashland County- Lake Superior, the Penokee Mountains, deep snow and amazing forest resource. These forests have so much to offer for both work and recreation. My goal is to help landowners connect with their property in new and meaningful ways.
