Ag Loan Officer
(308) 754-2400

I have been in the financial industry for 10 years with 7 of those years specializing in the Ag Industry. I graduated with my Bachelor's in Business in 2016 from Bellevue University. As an Ag Loan Officer I am committed to develop and maintain strong relationships with area farmers, ranchers and agribusiness professionals. With my experience and education I, along with our great team, can assist you and your operation in meeting financial needs associated with the ever-changing Ag Industry.

I grew up 45 miles south of St. Paul in a small town called Giltner. I currently live with my longtime girlfriend Shelbea Mamot in Palmer, who is a 2nd grad teacher and volleyball coach for Palmer Public Schools. Shelbea and I together have 3 boys, Braylon, Paxton, Memphis, and 1 daughter, Briyer, as well as a dog, Bristol. We are excited and look forward to learning more about the community and becoming more involved in community events.

In our free time, Shelbea and I love to golf (I golf, she drives the cart), spend time on the boat at the lake, travel with the kids and spend quality time with friends and family.
