Client Service Manager

Marketing. Event Planning. Client Communication.

I joined The Beissler Group in 2017 as our Client Service Manager.  Prior to that, I worked in the Staffing Industry for 6 years where my focus included business development and client management.  I am responsible for client communication and marketing, event planning and other tasks to improve the client experience and processes within the practice. I have a Bachelor’s Degree from the University of St. Thomas.

I run because it's good for me. Also, because I like to eat a lot. 

In my free time I enjoy running with my dog Charlie, cooking and baking with my husband Chris, and going to the cabin with my family.  On the weekend you can probably find me checking out a local brewery with my friends.

CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER ™ / Senior Financial Advisor

Helping clients live out their life goals.

I graduated from the University of Minnesota with a Bachelor's Degree in Mechanical Engineering and acquired a master's equivalent in Nuclear Engineering from the Bettis Atomic Power Laboratory.  I served 11 years in the United States Navy and achieved the rank of Lieutenant. Subsequently, I worked at General Electric as a Six Sigma Black Belt. In 2000, I decided to apply my analytical problem-solving skills toward helping people and joined the financial services industry.  I have been a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ since 2005. 

Navigating the complexities of making financial decisions can take a lot of time and effort, can create uncertainty, and can distract people from living purpose-filled lives.  I want to use my skill and expertise to take away the worry of financial management for our clients, so they can live out their life goals.   

I like to serve my community. 

I am active in my community and church.  I have coached 40+ sport seasons and have worked in youth ministry since 2005.  I enjoy being a positive influence in the lives of the next generation.  I also like to run, play golf, travel, and spend time with my wife and four kids.

Outside the office, I love to travel, especially going on cruises with my son.  We have a goal to go on every Disney Cruise ship before he goes to college!  I also enjoy playing the piano and finding new, eclectic places around town to meet up with friends.  Let me know if you have a new suggestion!

Advisor Support Specialist

Committed to helping you succeed.

I joined The Beissler Group in October of 2020 as an Advisor Support Specialist. Prior to joining The Beissler Group, I worked at the Focus Financial corporate office with Compliance as an intern and an analyst for a year and a half.  Right now my role is to support our team of advisors and service your accounts as I learn and gain the skills to advance into a Financial Advisor.  I received a bachelor’s degree in Statistics from the University of Minnesota – Twin Cities.

"You miss 100% of the shots you don't take".

When I get home, I am usually sifting through different sports applications to stay caught up. I also love spending a time playing board games with my wife, which typically ends in me being outplayed. I play the bass guitar and lead a pre-teen to teen boys bible study during the week.
