I have been with Fundraising University since the inception in 2009. What I cherish about the job is the relationships with the coaches and their programs. My first “Aha moment” was during the fall of my first year. I was working with the Hastings football team, and we ended up helping them raise $13,000 to replace jerseys that had been in the program since for almost 20 years. The excitement from the coaches and players when they reached the goal is what I strive to obtain with every group I work with.
My passion for working with teams and coaches stems from my Father, as he was a high school coach and athletic director. My childhood was spent on the practice field and in the weight room. I was fortunate enough to be a collegiate student athlete at UNO and played on teams that won three conference championships. I was a two-time all conference player and was able to tryout with the Detroit Lions post-college. I have a very supportive Fiancé Kayla and we have two beautiful daughters Stella and Sloan.
