I believe in the power of helping people. I became a loan officer when a local bank told me that I needed to save more before I should even think about buying a house. 6 months later I closed on my first house with the assistance of a great loan officer who took the time to help me. That's my motivation - to help others in similar situations. I've been a loan officer for 25 years. I've helped thousands of people understand the mortgage process and help them buy their homes. I am extremely knowledgeable with all things mortgage. I thrive on finding a solution and solving problems. In my 'free' time, I am a dedicated volunteer EMT in my town. I've been an EMT for 20 years. Its all about helping people. I have two wonder kids who keep me on my toes as well as two active dogs.
