Welcome to the new Toastmaster’s year! I am excited to continue to serve the members of District 19 as your District Director.
I have been a Toastmaster for nearly 7 years. I am a member of four clubs, calling Sunrise Marion my Home Club. Over the years, I have served as an office in each of my clubs. I have served the members of the District as both an Area Governor and Division Governor, before entering the Trio last year as Club Growth Director. I was excited to earn my second DTM this past year, while still working hard to improve my own communication and leadership skills.
My husband, Todd, and I have three kids between us. My daughter Samantha, is a Toastmaster at heart – and will return when she completes school. The rest of the family – Todd, Zach and Caitlin – are what I like to call “future Toastmasters”. Our rescue dog, Vinnie,
I have worked at TrueNorth in Cedar Rapids, in the financial services industry, for the last 22 years. I spend my days talking about retirement plans and life insurance. In my free time, I enjoy reading and spending time with my family.
I am looking forward to helping you, the members, and our clubs in District 19. Together, we can do GREAT things!
