About Me

I love the mortgage business!  In 15 years, I have been able to help thousands of families navigate the complicated mortgage process and reach the dream of homeownership.  This business is challenging, exhilarating, and has kept me fully engaged all this time!

Getting a mortgage can sometimes feel scary, overwhelming, and confusing.  I deal really well with chaos and my goal has always been to understand my client's deep desires, dreams, and fears and then help position them for best deal upon purchasing a home.  I also love consulting homeowners when it comes to making important financial decisions so they can build wealth and achieve their goals.  To refi or not to refi, I love nerding out on that question!

My crazy passion for being a loan officer has spread to others during my 10+ years with Guild Mortgage.  I believe that if me and my team can have this much fun and successfully help hundreds of clients per year, I can help other Loan Officers and Branch Managers do the same.  I have had the pleasure of becoming a professional coach in our industry and today I serve as a branch manager for 10 locations.

Outside of the office I am overwhelmingly blessed with 2 high energy daughters, Gemma and Gwen, and my rad husband, Galen. We love to ski, boat, travel, and be with friends and family here in the Reno/Tahoe area.
