"I strive to give each client personalized one-on-one attention that includes an individualized care plan.
When possible, I work closely with family members to learn as much as I can about each client, so that I know how I can best be of service and meet their specific needs."
I have always been passionate about helping others. My mother is a nurse and I grew up listening to conversations about her helping patients in the emergency department. I was amazed at her commitment to caring for people.
I also attended a university that encourages students to “power lives of meaning.” This inspired me to volunteer for a group of domestic violence advocates and a shelter for women and children escaping abuse. I found it extremely gratifying to help and learned that the simplest act can make the biggest impact on someone in need. After graduating from college I continued to assist others while working in the financial services industry. This taught me about financial management, knowledge that I use today as a professional fiduciary.
But, I wanted to do more for people.
It was while working in financial services I met my mentor, a professional fiduciary. As we talked, he convinced me that my intelligence and caring nature would be a natural fit for working in the field.
My life changed when I became a professional fiduciary in 2016. Finally, I had the opportunity to help people in ways I had always hoped and believed I had found my calling. When the Minnesota Court appointed me to my first guardianship case, I worked hard to ensure that my client took advantage of the most appropriate services available to her.
Years later, I still have that case and although it has been my most challenging one to date, it has taught me a tremendous amount about compassion and the importance of fighting for what is right.
I have truly enjoyed helping my clients live their best life possible.
Throughout my experience as a professional fiduciary, I have worked with a variety of clients with a range of abilities. Whether dementia, traumatic brain injury, developmental disabilities, cognitive impairment, reactive attachment disorder, oppositional defiance disorder, physical disabilities, or substance abuse, I treat each of them with respect. I also offer them a network of professionals such as medical, social workers, realtors, attorneys, estate sale specialists, and therapists to help address their specific caretaking needs.
I am insured, bondable, and hold a current background study. I am experienced in working with unique family situations and complex cases.
