I started my mortgage career in 1997. My professional experience spans from consumer mortgage and financial lending, to commercial and investor lending, real estate sales and entrepreneurship.  I am a knowledgeable, insightful, “out of the box” thinker and very personable.  I am a huge advocate for my clients and have a “never surrender attitude”.  I am one of a rare group of mortgage planners in the nation who has invested in the technology, tools and training necessary to deliver a comprehensive mortgage plan.  I allow my clients to consider several mortgage options and then determine the strategy that best helps accomplish their goals.

I see transactions from all different angles and know how technology can and should be applied to transactions, in the lending industry and FinTech.  I have always looked for better ways for everyone to win and bring long term value.  I am currently involved in a platform called Property Facto.  Its purpose is to make it easy for everyone to record and store information about everything they own including their home.  It allows others like agents, plumbers and electricians to help by adding history to your items. This makes it easier to find and maintain records and even share when you buy and sell your home.

I have lived in Idaho since I was 4.  I have seen a lot of changes and met many wonderful people.  Idaho is great place to live and raise a family.

I really enjoy helping others.  I am a volunteer firefighter at the Wilder Fire Department.  I am also currently working on getting my Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) license.  I enjoy serving and helping people in all walks of my life.
