Mark was born and raised on a family farm just 25 minutes south of Des Moines, IA in St. Mary’s, IA. His summers, weekends, and nights were spent helping out with raising the hogs, baling hay, and anything else that needed to be done. Early mornings and late nights were often the norm to accomplish his daily tasks. This resulted in a work ethic that is not often seen today. After graduating high school from Martensdale St. Mary’s, Mark joined the Iowa Army National Guard in the 1088th PSD. Following the completion of his initial training, Mark returned home, but was then quickly deployed for a year to Kuwait in 2004. After returning home from his deployment, Mark then pursued his Finance degree from Iowa State University. During this same time, Mark joined the Iowa Air National Guard and the 132nd FW out of Des Moines, IA. Mark graduated from Iowa State University in May 2008 and began working full-time with the Air Guard holding several positions. Mark is currently still active in the Air Guard and works at the Base Contracting Office as a Contract Specialist.
When the opportunity presented itself for Mark to enter the world of Finance, he eagerly pursued it. Mark joined Gershman Mortgage in October of 2013 and enjoys helping his clients make informed financial decisions. His focus is on Conventional, FHA, VA, and USDA residential purchases and refinances. Mark is located at the Gershman office at 8460 Birchwood Ct. Ste. 700, Johnston IA 50131, directly in front of the Wynnsong movie theater.
