I’m a … Modern Woodmen financial representative in Farr West, Utah.

My family includes … my wife, LeAnn, and children, Nick, 17; Isaac, 15; Sam, 8; Olivia, 6; and Lindee, 1.
Before Modern Woodmen, I was … working in manufacturing, building heat sensors for fire alarm systems. I was also doing construction – mainly finish work – on the side.
Why I began a career with Modern Woodmen … In May of 2013. I was approached by Managing Partner Doug Hunt.  He asked me if I was looking to switch careers, and to my surprise, I was. I began working and setting appointments and haven't stopped.
I chose Modern Woodmen because … I was so impressed with all the good qualities. I never understood what a fraternal financial services organization really was until I read up on all the amazing things done and the money donated. It is honestly a blessing to be a part of this great organization.
The best part of my career is … Helping people create, understand and maintain a great path to a successful retirement. I love seeing my friends and their friends understand and be optimistic about their future. And most of all, I love seeing all the happy faces of the people and organizations we help.
