How did I get to Umpqua Bank?
Born in Santa Rosa, California, and trading the warmth for 360 days of rain actually isn't as bad as it sounds. I've lived in Bellingham for nearly 20 years, and wouldn't trade the easy access to the mountains, lakes, rivers, and ocean for anything.
My collegiate background is composed of attending Western Washington University for a total of 4 years, earning my undergraduate degree in Business Administration, Management and an MBA in Marketing while finishing in the top 15% of my class. Western has been named to Aspen Institute Global 100 List as a Top 100 MBA Program in the world.
I then applied to work for the "World's Greatest Bank," Umpqua Bank, as a Mortgage Banker, and they hired me on to both originate and refinance home loans. For the eighth year in a row, Umpqua has been named to the FORTUNE 100 Best Companies to Work For list. I couldn't be happier with the clients I have the privilege of helping, and the colleagues I get to stand by every day.
My work philosophy...
Whether you are looking to purchase your first home or you’ve bought and sold a few in your day, navigating through the mortgage process takes time, work, and expertise. I’ve got that covered, and I’m here to help.
It is not only my humble goal to be your lender for life and provide great locally-grown loans, but also to be your trusted advisor. I am driven to provide my clients with the service and dependability they deserve while making the largest and most exciting purchase of their life. My goal is to educate my clients on the various loan programs available and use my resources, strong communication, and honesty to ensure a smooth process.
With five years of banking and property management experience I have the ability to both originate and advise on purchase and refinance loans. My out-of-the-box thinking provides me with a unique ability to acclimate to diverse situations - allowing me to satisfy a variety of client needs.
Work isn't all I do...
In my spare time I am a sports enthusiast who loves both soccer and football (or pretty much anything on ESPN). I am also a self-proclaimed fantasy football guru. And fun fact…I’ve been to nearly 15 countries!
