For the past 4 years, I have been a noteworthy leader under Dakota Property Management as their Property Tech. I can be credited for contributing to Future Builders as their Construction Cleaning Tech for their new builds also during that time. Some of you may have already met me through my prior years where I was employed at Schatz Crossroad’s truck stop as a server and evening manager.

I joined IPM in September 2021 as the Property Manager. I’m excited for the opportunity to learn and be mentored by the best in the business, Matt Watne, and share the experience I have with the maintenance side of property management. Combined we make a great team.
