About me

I grew up in a rural farming community in North Dakota.  The culture there involves a strong work ethic and a commitment to help your neighbors.  I come fom a construction family that reinforces these values.  I'm the first in my family to go to college and graduate school.  The mix of these factors created in me a strong desire to help regular people who find themselves in the middle of situations they never expected to be in.  I can relate to my clients because of my history.  I never forget where I come from and that I stand on the shoulders of my family.
