    Establishing my own company 20 years ago, I am experienced in many aspects of owning a business. With between 15 to 25 employees at any one time, as the President of the company and as the top salesperson, I was very happy to have provided each employee with great benefits and the ability for them to achieve individual wealth and success. Having sold our interest in Office Interiors & Design, Inc. to our third partner June 1st, I am looking forward to using my business experience and life skills in the pursuit of the next chapter of my career in the Real Estate field. I believe the segway into the Real Estate arena will be a natural fit. And I hope to continue to be of value to the customer base I built over the past 34 years.Establishing my own company 20 years ago, I am experienced in many aspects of owning a business.

    On November 1, 1993, I joined Mary Kay as an independent beauty consultant to earn extra money while working a full time job and two other part-time jobs. I continued working full-time, with one of the other part-time jobs until May 1, 2002, when I promoted myself to a sales director.   Now, I help other people start their own Mary Kay businesses to earn extra money and live their dreams. Over the past 22 years, I have earned eight company cars (we are in the process of earning our ninth car) and been in the top company personal sales since 1999. For the past six years, I have been in the top twenty, finishing last year with my personal best at #6. My true passion is to provide the best customer service that anyone could ever want. Listening to and treating others the way they want to be treated and you expect to be treated has always been my personal desire.

    Independent Financial Advisor helping clients reach their financial goals. Offering a wide range of financial products and services to individuals and business owners. An effective investment plan strives to capture high returns while managing the risk inherent in the investment. Diversification is the time honored risk tool and a diversified portfolio should be comprised of several asset classes. Certainly a portion should be allocated to traditional investments. However, I can also assist you in selecting an investment model specific for you that may or may not include real estate, private equity, and direct investment in oil and gas, and other tangible assets* depending on your situation. An appropriate mix of all these asset classes offers investors the potential to adjust their risk-reward profile as they seek to improve returns, lower portfolio volatility, and mange tax and income parameters. Keep in mind that diversification and asset allocation cannot guarantee better performance and does not eliminate the risk of investment losses. *These investments involve a high degree of risk and are not suitable for all investors. Registered Representative of and securities offered through Berthel Fisher & Company Financial Services, Inc.

    As a local Shelter Insurance agent, I understand that life in Nebraska can be unpredictable. Anything from the weather to an accident can catch you off guard and disrupt your life. My job is to help you be prepared when life throws you those curve balls. When you contact me to discuss your insurance needs, I do more than quote rates. I create an environment where you are comfortable to discuss what's important to you, and discuss what you need to know to insure what's most important to you. That way, when life's unexpected events happen, you can sleep better at night knowing you're covered.
