Courtney Ann Schaefer

Financial Representative


Courtney grew up in Sisseton, SD, and married Dustin Schaefer, originally from Wilmot, in 2014. The couple moved back to Sisseton, following the birth of their son in 2017.  Outside of the work, they enjoy good food and great music, and are either spending their time at rodeos, or working cattle with family.

Courtney knows the first hand effects of risk-based planning.  Her mother passed away from cancer at 34, leaving Courtney's father a widower with four children, ranging in ages from 5-15. Helping families build and preserve legacies continues to be main goal of Courtney's.

Courtney obtained her bachelors of science in agricultural and resource economics and agricultural business, and her masters of science in economics with an emphasis in agriculture at South Dakota State University, Brookings, SD.
