About Me

I joined the mortgage industry in 2004 on the operations side of the loan process, part time, to have the best of both worlds – remaining home with my first born while keeping one foot in the professional side of life.  After our fourth & youngest son was off to school, I made the move to full time on the sales side where I began originating loans in 2018.  I feel strongly that my start in operations has given me the edge in knowing not only what it takes to close a loan from start to finish, but the experience to find any potential issues upfront in order to resolve them early to prevent any undue stress during the process that is in our control.

My favorite part of the process is getting to know my borrowers and customizing the process as much as possible.  I like to find their long and short term goals to offer the best programs to fit their goals.   I feel giving my borrowers options is important because while I may have the knowledge and experience in the products and process, what may make the most sense on paper, may not fit their situation.   While I strive to do whatever I can to make this process as easy as possible, this is not my money nor will I make the payments, so when there are options available, the decision of which program to use should be up to the borrowers.

I like to spend my free time with my husband Travis & our four boys.   Sports are a big part of our life, as well as philanthropy as a family.   In 2023, after 7 years of live lemonade stands for Alex’s Lemonade Stand (foundation for Childhood Cancer), we hit the 25k mark raised as a family for the organization.   We also started a not for profit called Endless Hugs with my late sister & her son in mind.   We take photos of lost loved ones and put them on items like stuffed animals or pillows to give to those grieving.   It was the best solution we could think of to still “hug” those we loved and lost.

Let’s find the right home loan for you

We have loan options to fit every situation, from down payment assistance programs for first-time homebuyers to government-sponsored programs for military families and rural residents or jumbo loans in high-cost markets.



A Conventional loan is a great option if you have an average to high credit score and little debt. This allows you to take advantage of lower interest rates. With these types of loans, you have the option to put 20% down, which eliminates the need for private mortgage insurance (PMI) and saves you money. If you don’t have a large down payment saved up though, don’t worry. We have Conventional loan options for down payments as low as 3%.
Down payment assistance

Down payment assistance

If you’re purchasing your first home, you have options to buy without saving a full down payment. Down payment assistance (DPA) programs can help with your down payment in the form of a loan or grant that is often forgiven over time.


If you’re looking to buy on a tight budget, these loans are a great option. It’s easier to qualify for FHA loans because they carry lower credit score requirements and lower down payment options starting at 3.5% down. They’re also insured by the Federal Housing Administration (FHA) and only issued by FHA-approved lenders.

All loans are subject to underwriter approval; terms and conditions may apply. Subject to change without notice.
