Meet Chris...

Hello! Advertising has always been my passion and for over 20 years I have been partnering with customers to assist with their advertising needs. In 2004, I opened Springboard Advertising to help local clients reach their marketing goals and grow their businesses. My attention to detail, organization, knowledge, communication skills and relationship building help my clients achieve those goals. When I’m not "advertising," I can be found laughing with my husband and two kids, hanging out with my friends and neighbors, golfing, reading, biking, binging on Netflix, and cheering on the Huskers. Originally from Omaha, we’ve lived in Des Moines since 2000 and are happy to call this home.
