I have had a few different careers over the years. I grew up helping on the family farm here in Rosemount. I graduated from Rosemount High School in 2001. Decided I want to see the world. I enlisted into the Marine Corps. After 14 years, 6 overseas deployments, getting married and having two amazing children. I decided to seize the opportunity to return home. We moved back to Minnesota in July 2014, I transitioned into the Army reserves to continue to serve my country and my community. I had the opportunity to shadow a friend at R. D. & Associates, where I found that I could do something I truly love, working, creating/caring for beautiful outdoor spaces for friends and clients.
