I was born and raised in Williston, ND and graduated from Dickinson State University. In 1996, I began selling real estate with Basin Brokers, which has been a family owned business since 1973. In 2001, I became partner with my dad, Roger. Being active in real estate has driven myself to become more active and involved with the North Dakota Association of Realtors (NDAR). In 2002, I was elected by my peers to become the youngest State President of NDAR. I have served on numerous local, state and national committees prior too and continue to be involved in such. In 2010, I was elected City Commissioner to the City of Williston, ND and in 2012 appointed as Chairperson of the Williams County, North Dakota Planning and Zoning Board.
