Ask A Mortgage Question


As a mortgage lender, I bring a unique blend of personal and professional experiences to my work. Born in Deadwood, SD, and currently residing in the serene Black Hills of South Dakota, I am a dedicated wife and mother of two lively ginger boys who bring joy and activity to my days.

Since 2009, I have been committed to delivering exceptional service, educating clients, and providing honest advice in the mortgage industry. Despite my busy schedule, I make time to attend my kids' sports events, indulge in snowboarding adventures, and enjoy a round of golf whenever possible.

In the everchanging landscape of lending regulations, my goal is to guide clients through a seamless and stress-free process. With the ability to lend in nearly all US states, my unwavering focus remains on fostering strong client relationships.
