In my spare time, I continue to further my education, working on the CLU, CIP and, CFP designations.


I enjoy spending time with my wife and boys at the hockey rink during the winter, ball diamonds in the summer and at the lake, fishing, golfing, quad'ing and boating.

Associate Insurance Advisor
Lloydminster

I started at The Co-operators in 2001 as a Client Service Representative, and held the position for seven years. After a few years away from the insurance industry, I came back to The Co-operators in 2014 as an Associate Insurance Advisor at the Lloydminster, SK, location. I've received my Level 1 and Level 2 licences and have been trained in Home, Auto and Facility Auto.

Helping people is my passion. I was born and raised in Lloydminster, as were my parents and grandparents, so I have a strong connection to this community, which only strengthens my instinct to make sure our clients are taken care of.

In my spare time, I love caring for animals, and spending as much time as possible with my family and friends.

Associate Financial Advisor
Lloydminster

I joined The Co-operators in 2016 as a Client Contact Representative. In 2017, I attained my Level 1 General Insurance Licence and my certification for Farm and Business insurance. In 2018, I received my Life Insurance Licence.


In our office, I specialize in Farm and Business insurance. I work with our agriculture and commercial clients, helping them build and plan for their future with Life insurance, living benefits and wealth management.

I have a strong business background that includes marketing, accounting and law. I am currently working on attaining my CFP Designation so that I am better able to assist my clients with their estate and succession planning needs.


I’m always looking out for my clients. Their livelihood and peace of mind is so important to me. I want to get to know each individual, their families, their story, their goals, and then help them achieve success.


I spend the majority of my spare time with my husband and two small children, often taking advantage of the great outdoors! Some of our hobbies include camping, fishing and quad'ing, on top of the various sports that we all participate in throughout the year.
