Bio

I grew up outside of Wisconsin Rapids, WI and studied Forest Management at UW-Madison. I worked in several states and glad to have landed back in Wisconsin. In my free time, I enjoy hunting deer and grouse, fishing, camping, kayaking, and biking. I spent a lot of time outdoors growing up and grateful to continue that in my professional life. I enjoy the opportunities to connect landowners to the resources they need to accomplish their forestry goals.

What I like about Eau Claire and Chippewa Counties: I enjoy the mix of landscapes from the rivers to the hills and the agricultural land in between. Each county has something for everyone with our vast variety of outdoor activities and recreation.

Bio

I grew up outside of Osseo and studied Forest Management and Urban Forestry at UW-Stevens Point. In my free time, I enjoy fishing, hunting, cooking, baseball, snowmobiling, downhill skiing and spending time with my family.  I always knew I wanted to work outdoors with my hands “on the land” and help landowners both appreciate and enjoy the vast array of benefits and fun a healthy forest can provide.

What I like about Eau Claire County: The diversity of landscapes, tree species, and the land uses; as well as, the great people I get to meet!
