I’m a constant [over]thinker, who relies immensely on way too much coffee (black, no room for cream). Other conversation starters include how I survived as the youngest of three boys in rural America, and that one time I interviewed country music star, Trisha Yearwood.

To me, balance is everything. That’s not to say my life is always in a perfect state of equilibrium, but consciously attempting to achieve balance is important to who I am. Because of this, I often encourage others to find the silver lining and ask questions people aren’t expecting. The bigger picture is the better picture.

My favorite writing assignments are the ones that inspire and help evoke a better tomorrow. The moment we realize that better is good, is the same moment we allow ourselves to live our best life. Lucky for me, COUNTRY Financial® and I share this same motto. 

COUNTRY Financial® is the marketing name for the COUNTRY Financial family of affiliated companies (collectively, COUNTRY), which include COUNTRY Life Insurance Company®, COUNTRY Mutual Insurance Company®, and their respective subsidiaries, located in Bloomington, Illinois.
