I have a passion for helping farmers manage risk and increase their profitability. As an agent at Ibeling Insurance Services in Ackley, IA, I work with farmers to financially secure the future of their farm. I see agriculture as a way of life. Growing up, everyone in my family pitched in to get the job done. We worked on the farm and played on the farm. Our annual family vacation was going to the Iowa State Fair. Knowing that I wouldn't be operating the family farm in the future, I opted for finding a fit in the agricultural industry. I received a bachelors degree in Agricultural Business from Iowa State University. My career started at FCStone in West Des Moines, IA as a Commodity Broker. Each day, I worked with county elevators hedging their price risk on the Chicago Board of Trade. My husband, Levi, and I decided to move closer to home. I had the opportunity to continue working in agricultural risk management as an insurance agent. Ibeling Insurance Services is a great fit for me, as I love what I do, the people I work with, and the community I live in. In the fall, I coach high school volleyball at AGWSR Schools in Ackley. We have a team filled with delightful, talented young ladies. Levi and I have been blessed with a healthy baby boy, Alex, in December of 2013. We are enjoying parenthood, as Alex continues to amaze us!
