Having worked as a real estate agent for over 7 years before becoming a licensed loan officer, my expertise in the mortgage industry gives me a greater understanding of the quality experience needed during all aspects of the home loan process. My number one goal is to facilitate a smooth, stress-free transaction between my clients and their agents. Having grown up in a small town, my belief is that a mortgage should be about building strong relationships and helping all my clients reach their financial goals, not just a transaction. As a loan officer with FirstTrust, taking a consultative approach with my clients is very important to me. I want to make sure all my clients are well-informed of every option available before choosing which home loan is right for them.
After studying at Kansas State University, I lived in the Manhattan area for 18 years then moved to Kansas City to pursue my career in the real estate industry. After moving to Joplin in 2019 with my husband, I began my desire for becoming a mortgage lender. I am licensed in Missouri and Kansas and look forward to helping the Joplin community with their home financing, whether that is a purchase or refinance. In my free time, I enjoy working on home improvement projects, spending time outdoors playing with my yellow lab, Tillie, and spending time with my family and friends.
