I grew up in the small town of Danville, Virginia and attended Averett University. I’ve been proud to call Raleigh home for almost 20 years.

I got into the mortgage business 23 years ago, when I saw a newspaper ad and decided to explore a new career path. Since then, I’ve enjoyed every moment of helping clients fulfill their dreams of homeownership.

My areas of expertise include working with self-employed borrowers, complex financing scenarios, construction and renovation financing, as well as jumbo loans.

I am passionate about educating and informing my clients so they can make good financial decisions with the large investment made in their home. When it comes to working with agents and business partners, I enjoy elevating their game through support and training. I love to talk about the mortgage and real estate business – maybe too much!

Outside of work, you can find me cycling, boating, offshore fishing, or relaxing at the beach. I have two wonderful children and two even more wonderful grandchildren, whom I love very much.
