I joined Northwestern Mutual in 1991 working as part of the District Manager’s team. In 1994, I changed rolls to work more individually with two representatives as their practices were growing, which ultimately led to an Associate Financial Representative role with Billy Cooper and managing his practice. I am NC Life & Accident/Health and Long Term Care licensed and handle the daily operations to include new business and customer service. I was born and raised in the Asheville, NC and live in Leicester, NC with my husband Scott, daughter Kirsten and our two French Bulldogs, Tazz and Leo.
