I am a 1994 AIB College of Business grad. I jumped head first into the officialship world in District Associate Court in Des Moines County, Iowa, for the Honorable Thomas R. Brown immediately after my last successful take. A self-admitted momma's girl, I headed back to central Iowa when I landed a District Court position in Carroll County with the Honorable Gary L. McMinimee, and several months later hopped even closer to home when I accepted a position in District Associate Court in Boone County, Iowa, with the Honorable David R. Danilson. Judge Danilson and I were a team for 15 years when he headed to the Appellate Court Bench and I headed north to Webster County District Court with the Honorable Kurt L. Wilke, where I find myself to this day.
I grew up in Webster City, Iowa, where I found my husband of 16 years. We decided family was (and is) number one and moved back to Webster City in 1995 to start our own. We have two children: Brock, 15, and Hannah, 13. I served on the St. Thomas Elementary School Board for 5 years and held the position of secretary for 3 of those years and was vice president and president the remaining 2. I try to be as involved in the activities of my children as time and sanity permits :)
I live for good times with friends and family and truly believe almost every situation benefits from a smile or laughter. I welcome the opportunity to serve as Official Director to the ICRA Board and look forward to making fond memories.
