We'd like you to Meet


We are derived of businessmen and women, parents and community members that help support our athletic program!


I was born here in Brookings in 1972.  I have lived here all my life, except for a four year tour in the United States Marine Corps.  I grew up in the aggregate and construction industry and felt if I was ever going to try something else I should do it after highschool or I probably never would. In the USMC I did all my training in the San Diego and Camp Pendleton area, then my first duty....

I am a Client Relations Manager at Central Payments and my husband Reed and I moved back to Brookings in 2009. We both attended SDSU and made the decision to move back into this great town to raise our family. We have three children, Paige (15), Rystrom (12) and Mia (10). All of them are heavily involved in the athletic programs which include volleyball, soccer, football, golf and basketball. I enjoy playing volleyball, boating and spending time with family and friends. I have been on The Backers Board for the past 3 years and I am really excited about our new enthusiastic board members! I am looking forward to implementing all of our ideas to get our community more involved to support the Bobcat Backers! GO BOBCATS!

My wife and I grew up in Brookings and were happy when the opportunity to start my insurance
business brought us back home after college to live and raise our family. We own StateWide Insurance
and are proud to be supporters of our Bobcats. We have three children, Cody, Colin, and Allie, who are
active in football, basketball, golf, volleyball, softball and hockey. I am happy to be serving on The
Backers Board to give back to the programs that helped me growing up and do our best to provide for today's Bobcats.


Building a winning culture is hard. Our group is devoted to offering our time and energy with the goal of creating that culture. We care about our athletes and their success.

My wife Brandi and I are both graduates of Brookings High School Class of 98'. I am an owner of Brookings Engraving. I was a multi-sport athlete and currently have 3 boys Carsen, Griffen, and Tallen who are attending the schools and participating in athletics. I thought this was a great way to donate some time and effort back in to a program that helped make us who we are today. I remember Friday's were RED and BLACK DAY and I hope we can bring that home town feel back. GO BOBCATS!!
