I’ve been in the mortgage industry since 1995 and was a Realtor for 14 years before that. Having bought and sold several homes myself provides me a unique perspective on every facet a homebuyer experiences. This allows me to empathize with what an impact the home buying process has on my clients as well as anticipate issues before they come up.

I’m a proud graduate of Kansas State University with a degree in Finance. My goal is to make every client feel educated and in control of the process with a stress-free result.
