A mortgage professional with nearly twenty years of experience, my goal is to educate and inform borrowers throughout the financing process by providing honest advice every step of the way.

 Whether you are purchasing a new home or refinancing an existing one, understanding your unique financial needs is my top priority. I encourage making a mortgage planning session as the first step for new homebuyers and take pride in helping you select the option that best fits your short and long-term financial goals.

 In my free time, I enjoy hunting, fishing, and camping with my husband, our two teenage children, and our two Labrador Retrievers, Macey and Buck.
