I started my finance career with Ford Motor Company, where I learned the importance of scenario analysis in evaluating major financial decisions. Later, as a financial management consultant at PwC/IBM, I helped guide clients through their own decision-making processes. Today, I leverage my years in finance and management consulting to deliver an uncommon experience for every one of my mortgage clients.

Whenever possible I meet with my clients at the start of the loan process. We spend our time reviewing and discussing their financial situation – so I can offer informed advice and so my clients can confidently make decisions about their future. I then guide my clients through the mortgage process, maintaining open communication and full accountability from beginning to end. I believe it is my transparent, proactive approach that has allowed me to build a track record of consistently reliable performance since entering the mortgage industry in 2011.

While technically not a Colorado native, my family moved to Colorado when I was 3 years old and I grew up skiing and enjoying the outdoors. After nearly 12 years on the East Coast, I returned to Colorado in 2005 with my own family, and we now do our best to escape to the mountains at every opportunity. I hold a BS in Business Administration from the University of Colorado in Boulder and both an MBA and an MA in International Relations from Boston University.
