About MeAs a Mortgage Loan Officer with Huntington Bank, I provide mortgage options and pre-purchase counseling for families in Kalamazoo, Allegan, Van Buren and Ottawa Counties. I also work along Lake Michigan, from St. Joseph up to Holland. I have worked in the mortgage industry since early 2000.
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 have built my business by taking time to educate prospective customers and getting them ready to buy their first or next home. Not everyone I come into contact is ready to buy a home. Together we review income, debt, credit, and assets to develop a Roadmap To Success, which may ultimately lead to home ownership. I especially enjoy working with first time homebuyers, as it takes an experienced professional to navigate the multiple government loan and grant programs available. I also very much enjoy working with families looking to buy a vacation home.
I graduated from Andrews University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Media Technology and am involved in 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, People's Food Co-op as a Board Treasurer, and Home Builders Association member of the Parade of Homes Committee.
