Hobby is Beach

Helping a first time home buyer achieve their dream of home ownership, improving someone’s financial health, to all of the amazing people I have the pleasure of meeting along the way, these are just a few of the things I love about being a part of the mortgage industry. I could not imagine doing anything else!

I take pride in turning what some might consider a stressful time into an exciting and knowledge filled experience. I do this by making sure that I’m aware of my client’s goals, I educate them on all of their options and I make sure that they understand and are comfortable with every aspect throughout this process. My clients are never disappointed with the strong communication and transparency that I offer them.

In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family, shopping, traveling, and experiencing new things. My favorite trip I’ve been on so far is to Costa Rica; it’s beautiful! I also have a fur baby named Frankie.
