I have been in the real estate industry my entire career. Starting with a degree in Real Estate Finance from The University of Northern Iowa, I then worked for an outdoor advertising company (billboards) in Des Moines for six years at Real Estate Representative, Assistant Real Estate Manager and lastly Real Estate Manager. That is when my husband and I decided to start a family and move back to our roots of Eastern Iowa. I then began helping my Aunt and Uncle, Dan and Kathy Kaestner, with their real estate business. The work and hours continued to grow with their team and in March 2016 I became a licensed agent. In December 2017 I decided to branch out on my own with my real estate career with Iowa Realty. I live west of Cedar Rapids with my husband and our three children. We stay busy between work, kids' activities, volunteering in our community, and home improvement projects, if there is any time left!
