Let me help you get pre-approved today!

My love for homeownership began in 2006. I started my career in the real estate industry at a well-known local title company. You can say I was young and eager to learn! I loved the relationships I built with Real Estate Agents, Attorneys, Loan Officers, Buyers, and Sellers. I was hooked!

In 2016, I decided to make a career change and ventured into the mortgage side....and I have not looked back!

I love the people I meet on all sides of the closing table. Many of them I know within my community. My husband and two young children are very active in sports and clubs. I served on the Board of Directors for the local Boys & Girls Clubs of Marshall County and played a major role in their annual fundraisers. I am also an active volunteer with our local Junior Achievement chapter. My love for my community shines through as a mortgage banker. I love to help families obtain their dream of homeownership!

I am also a mortgage specialist with Homes for Heroes®. The Nationwide organization with the sole purpose of giving back to our local heroes. I have many connections to our local heroes and I take great pride in my partnership.

When heroes work with Homes for Heroes® affiliate real estate, mortgage, and local business specialists, they receive Hero Rewards® savings when buying, selling, or refinancing a home; or when making every day home-related purchases. Thank you to our local heroes: Firefighters and EMS, Law Enforcement, Military (Active, Reserves, and Veterans), Healthcare Professionals, Teachers.
