Let me help you get pre-approved today!

I have been in the financial services industry since 1996. I began my career at Lake City Bank in 1996 in Operations, moving into Treasury Management and finally finishing out in Marketing. In 2016, I became a licensed Mortgage Originator with Ruoff Mortgage.

My husband, Josh & I have lived in Warsaw for over 20 years. We love this community and have raised our two teenage sons here. I have been involved with Junior Achievement, the Cancer Care Fund, Kosciusko Economic Development Corporation Marketing Committee, and Partners in Education. I am currently on the board of directors for the Warsaw Education Foundation.

I pride myself on great customer service skills and an extensive knowledge of many aspects of banking. What I enjoy most about being a loan originator is the gratification that comes from helping people, whether it is getting them into a new home or just being available to answer questions about their existing loan. I am looking forward to assisting you with all your mortgage lending needs!
