As a Mortgage Loan Officer with Huntington Bank, I provide mortgage and pre-purchase options for families in Kalamazoo, Allegan, VanBuren and Ottawa Counties. I also work along Lake Michigan, from Benton Harbor-St. Joseph up to Holland. I have served as a Mortgage Lender since early 2000, and before that worked at a Realtor for many years.
My guiding principal is to provide hope, empower people, and build community. Everyone deserves a chance to sit at the economic table. With a focus on customer service, I take time to help educate prospective customers and getting them ready to buy their first or next home. Not everyone I come into contact with is ready to buy a home. I especially enjoy working with first-time homebuyers, as it takes an experienced Professional to help them navigate the multiple government loan and grant programs available. I also very much enjoy working with those looking to buy a vacation home.
I graduated from Andrews University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Media Technology and have been involved with the Fair Housing Center of Southwest Michigan Board of Directors as Secretary, the Michigan Real Estate Academy as a Real Estate Pre- Licensing Instructor of Financing Principals & Practice, sat on the Governmental Affairs and Fair Housing Committees at the Greater Kalamazoo Association of Realtors, served at People's Food Co-op as a Board Treasurer, and Home Builders Association member of the Parade of Homes Committee.
