Douglas Zima


Douglas ZimaI was raised on an Iowa farm with soybeans, corn and hay as the major crops.  My father purchased approximately 1,000 head of sheep every year which was a major chore.  I graduated from high school in 1968 and faced the draft so enlisted in the Army.  I am a veteran having served for three years with one year overseas. Upon discharge in 1971, I attended Texas A & M and graduated in 1975. 

After holding several hospital positions in Texas, I returned home to Iowa in 1981 and began my insurance career.  In 1983 I added financial services to the insurance business and have been doing that ever since.  My insurance business was sold in 2015 and I now solely work on investments. 

My wife and I have been married for 38 years and we have four adult children and two grandchildren.
