I began my career with Nodak Insurance in October, 2020. I grew up on our family farm in Wimbledon, ND which was homesteaded in 1882 where my brother is currently growing organic crops. My ND roots run deep as I have a passion for rural living and organic farming and frequently enjoy helping my brother on the farm.
I received a B.S. Degree in Music from Moorhead State College and a Master's Degree in Music from California State University, Northridge where I remained active as a professional drummer, percussionist, and music educator for many years in various communities surrounding Hollywood and Los Angeles. My music career has been the highlight of my life during which time I performed for musical theater, operas, symphonies, and top 40 bands. Some of my most notable gigs include playing shows for Don Rickles, Jerry Lewis, Jackie Evancho, Melissa Manchester, and Regis Philbin. My music has taken me on extensive tours throughout China, The U.S., and Europe. As a business owner I founded Entertainment Express and International Celebrity Images, a special event and professional party planning company that my sister and I continue to maintain.
In 2020 my sister Janna Joos and I decided to return to our North Dakota roots and have relocated to Fargo, ND where I am proud to join the ranks of Nodak Insurance Company as a career agent. I am excited to have the opportunity to work with clients to help them find the best possible insurance coverage for their homes, business, families, and farms. As a small business owner, I know how important good coverage is.
Throughout the years I have always been involved in community events and organizations. For ten years I served as the President of the Board of Directors for Temecula Valley Symphony, in Temecula, CA and transitioned to the position of Managing and Artistic Director for the past four years.
I would love the opportunity to meet you!
