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.

Chris has been a joy to work with for the past 7 years. You can tell from the positive attitude she brings to every meeting that she loves her work. Chris has helped shape our radio and TV commercials into something we are truly proud of airing to the public. We know we are making better decisions with our money due to her marketing expertise and the quality of the final product.
