Job Title: Branch Manager | Sr. Loan Officer
Direct Line: (541) 749-0610
“This is what I want to do with my life,” I thought in 2007 when I was introduced to the mortgage business. Not only was I good with numbers, helping individuals and families with their mortgages would tap all the organization and people skills I had relied on as a school teacher for nine years.
My teaching background continues to come in handy. I can help people understand when and why it makes sense to refinance their mortgage or to comprehend the various loan programs available to them. I have an array of loans available, including Conventional, Home Equity Conversion Mortgagae (HECM), Jumbo, VA and ODVA (Oregon-based veteran), FHA, Streamline VA and FHA, Rural Housing, and dozen more. Whether people qualify for a single loan option or three or four, I help guide them so they choose the best mortgage for their personal situation.
I love helping people create the life they want in Oregon, where I’ve spent my whole life. I grew up in Madras, attended COCC, OSU, and Eastern University and taught school in Sisters after completing my Masters. This is where I play, whether I’m white-water rafting, gardening, snow skiing or water skiing. Central Oregon is the community I strive to improve—whether through business, volunteering, the schools, or spearheading the installation of Central Oregon’s first 18-hole disc golf course so that families and kids would have something free and healthy to do in Sisters.
I’m all about helping people in every way I know how. Whether I’m saving client’s money through a refinance or helping them secure the right purchase loan when they’ve found the home of their dreams, I make sure they get the loan program that best suits their needs. Talking clients through each step of what can admittedly be a challenging process takes away the uncertainly and the fear. I love my career and helping people.
