I have lived in Eastern Iowa since 1995 after moving here from Germany. I am deeply invested in the community. Since 2000, I have held positions where I was able to tell stories. Those stories were told through newspaper articles, training videos for banks and credit unions as well as the development of topical communities. I started at United Way in September 2011 to help the organization tell its stories.
