1. What does winning the Chapter’s 2019 “Distinguished Planner Member of the Year” mean to you?
It is a complete surprise and honor to be selected for the Distinguished Planner Member of the Year
award. I am newer to the industry and I felt so welcomed into the chapter a few years ago when I
joined. It truly means the world to me that my colleagues would nominate me for this award.
2. What is your favorite part of being a member of the Heartland Chapter?
My favorite part of being a member of the chapter is the people. I have never met a group of kinder,
friendlier people and greatly value the relationships I have built with fellows members.
3. What is your primary professional goal for 2020 and why?
My professional goal for 2020 is to take the CMP exam. I feel this would be a great accomplishment and
a benefit for myself and my association.
4. Tell us about your vacation or staycation plans for this year?
My husband and I will be celebrating our 10th wedding anniversary this May. We had planned to go on a
long weekend trip but that has been postponed. I am hopeful we will be able to celebrate later this year.
