Before coming to Mortgage On A Mission, I spent 16 years working in consumer finance and mortgage lending. I am a NAMU Certified mortgage underwriter and have worked on Conventional, FHA, and VA loan scenarios. As a Senior Processor, I educate Realtors about the mortgage process, and I help home buyers quickly and smoothly move through underwriting to get to the closing day. I want each of my clients to understand the process and feel comfortable asking questions along the way.

Buying a home is one of the largest investments that a person will ever make. As a professional who has worked in underwriting, processing, and as an educator, I believe that the mortgage process does not have to be overwhelming when the right person and team is there to help. I help buyers by pre-underwriting their loan applications, which helps avoid surprises later on in the process. One thing I love about Mortgage On A Mission is the variety of lenders we work with, giving our clients many different options to consider.
