With nearly 20 years in the industry, I enjoy serving as president of the Des Moines Construction Breakfast Club where I helped develop a scholarship program for the ACE Mentor Program for high school students going into construction. Our company also sponsors the Heartland Finishes, Inc. Annual Scholarship for Construction Engineering Students at Iowa State University.
I also serve on committees for Master Builders of Iowa and The American Society of Professional Estimators, and am an active volunteer in my church. My favorite pastime is being with my beautiful family: wife Angie, daughters Sophia and Alexis, and son Logan. Outdoor activities are a favorite of mine including fishing, hunting (yes even for mushrooms), riding bikes with my family, and hiking with my dogs. You may also find me tinkering with my old car, playing basketball, investing in the stock market, or following politics. I'm also a huge Hawkeye fan.
What do I like best about Heartland Finishes? Our people! We have a great family atmosphere here. We try to keep our office a fun place to work and never take ourselves too seriously! We know that a happy team produces great work for our clients.
I love the people I work with at Heartland Finishes. With 31 years experience in the industry, I have been part of many projects. The Heartland Finishes team members are like family to me, and it gives me great satisfaction knowing their families rely on us for their jobs. My actual family consists of my five boys Brice, Andy, Jesse, Trevor and Quincy. My favorite pastimes include golf, pickup games with my boys, Iowa State athletics, Green Bay Packers, hunting and fishing. I graduated with a Bachelor's Degree in Agricultural Business from ISU.
Construction is a major theme in my life. From a B.S. in Construction Engineering at ISU to major home construction projects and helping to lead Heartland Finishes, I have immersed myself in it for years. Just ask my wife Anita and our three kids Luke, Max, and Ruth. Dad loves construction! When an accident resulted in a broken back in 2010, it may have slowed me down a little, but I'm still helping Heartland Companies grow. I love Iowa State athletics and bleed cardinal and gold. I'm an avid supporter of the Make-A-Wish Foundation. People who know me will tell you I'm good at integrating fun and work. At Heartland Finishes, we have a very fun atmosphere in our office. We get down to business when we need to, yet always with a light-hearted mood. When you enjoy what you do and your office surroundings, it makes coming to work very enjoyable.
In the four years I've been a member of the Heartland Finishes team, I have really enjoyed meeting and developing friendships with new people. I am a graduate of the apprentice training program. My wife Tracy and I have two beautiful daughters named Jenna and Madison, plus two cats to complete our happy family. With my love of softball, I enjoy coaching girls little league softball as well as soccer. Golf is also a favorite sport of mine.
With 30 years of construction experience, my education and training include the U.S. Navy and Iowa State University, where I earned a B.S. in Construction Engineering. I really enjoy the family atmosphere at Heartland Finishes and working with the great people. I am a member of ASPE and the ISU Alumni Association. My wonderful family includes my wife Kim, and daughters Hannah, Molly, and Jennifer. Favorite pastimes of mine are hunting, fishing, reading, and just about all sports you can think of.
With 24 years experience, I guess you could say I know a thing or two about this industry. What I like best about Heartland Finishes are the people and the team atmosphere that surround me every day. I have two great kids named Alex and Allison who keep me very busy. I also have a wonderful significant other named Mary. When I'm not with my family or at work, you might find me motorcycling, gardening, or playing a good round of golf.
With more than 16 years experience, I have served as a board member and treasurer for the National Association of Women in Construction. I graduated from the American Institute of Business with a degree in accounting and financial management. My amazing family consists of too many people to mention, but they are all very important to me. I love spending time with my family and friends, as well as golfing, reading, taking walks, and listening to my favorite music. My favorite aspect of working at Heartland Finishes is the family atmosphere.
After earning my degree in Architectural Drafting & Estimating from North Dakota State College of Science, I am very happy to be working with the wonderful people of Heartland Finishes. We work hard here, but at the same time we have fun, which surrounds me with an atmosphere of happy, productive people. I have a beautiful wife named Kali, and we are excited to be expecting our first child. We also have two cats named Mittens and Selena. In my spare time, I'm a big fan of fishing, hunting, camping, and the Dallas Cowboys.
My experience in this industry includes everything from supervision to project management and estimating, as well as being in the field. My career spans more than 35 years, and it started with a four-year carpenter apprenticeship. My wonderful wife Diana and I have been married for 33 years. We have two daughters and are excited to now have two grandchildren! I love spending time with my family and doing projects around our home. I also love traveling, riding my Harley-Davidson motorcycle, and going deep sea fishing. Packers trips with "the boys" are also a favorite of mine.
I have a Bachelor's Degree in Business Management, and love working with the team at Heartland Finishes. Everyone here is very welcoming and helpful at all times. My little family consists of my husband Brandon and myself. In our spare time, we enjoy boating and watching the Jayhawks play. We also love racing, whether it's going to races or listening to all types of races, but my favorite is watching Brandon race.

As I approach 30 years of experience, I am thankful for the family oriented atmosphere and professional surrounding here at Heartland Finishes. I began my career in the Carpenter Apprenticeship Training program plus partake in continuing education classes. My family consists of my wife Dione, our sons Forest, Tucker, and Garrett, as well as two dogs named Chelsea and Cash. I am a member of the United Methodist Church and enjoy fishing, hunting, Canadian Trophy Pike fishing, and I think you just can't beat the Mexican Riviera for a great vacation.
