About James Theilen

I was born the youngest of 8 children, raised and educated in the Cedar Valley. I am a firm believer in giving back to the community which has provided so well for my family. As a result, I have been involved with many civic, fraternal, professional and faith-based organizations. One of the greatest rewards my career can provide is knowing that I have had a positive impact on the life of a client. When not in the office, you might find me working in the yard, walking the dog or playing golf.
