Sharing all that Charles City and Northeast Iowa have to offer has become one of my passions. I started my real estate career in 2013 after more than seven years with the Charles City Area Chamber of Commerce and Community Revitalization (Charles City’s Main Street Iowa Program) where I was the programs’ director for the last five years.
One of the many reasons I love Charles City is this is my hometown. After graduating from Charles City High School, I attended Iowa State University where I majored in public relations and earned a general business minor. I enjoyed a variety of internship experiences and worked for an advertising and public relations agency before returning to Charles City in 2005.
I have developed a diverse knowledge base in the areas of local quality of life and community development. From community events to unique sites and attractions, I have first-hand experience with many of the things that make our area one of Iowa’s Great Places.
Through my experiences working with new and existing businesses, I have an understanding of a variety of incentive programs including grants, loans and tax credits. I also have a working knowledge of historic buildings including façade and upper story development projects. As a project facilitator, I worked closely with Charles City’s 2013 Façade Master Plan project providing improvements to more than twenty downtown buildings.
I am married and have one daughter. My husband, Josh, is the Service and Parts Director at Mike Molstead Motors. My parents also still reside in the community where my father has as successful optometric practice and my mother works for the Charles City Community Schools.
I am a member of the National Association of REALTORS®, Iowa Association of REALTORS® and Cedar Valley Board of REALTORS®. I am an active member and past president of the Charles City Rotary Club, member of P.E.O. Chapter CY, and attend Trinity United Methodist Church. I am also a member of the TLC: The Learning Center Parent Advisory Committee and a member of MOPS.
I look forward to sharing my real estate knowledge and love for the area with you.
