About Me

I have been a Loan Officer for 21 years helping new and existing homeowners with their dream of home ownership.   I live in Rapid City South Dakota in the beautiful Black Hills and I have been helping customers in not only SD, but also ND, WY, MI, TX, FL, NE, and MT.

After graduating from Vlparaiso University and entering the building trades I became an elevator salesperson in Chicago before moving to Grand Rapids Michigan.    However, becoming a loan officer was more than just a job to me. I love what I do, especially seeing the smiles on clients' faces after they purchase their first home.   I feel there is no better way to gain a leg up in life than home ownership.

As a member of this great Open Mortgage organization, I am dedicated to providing exceptional customer service. I aim to earn your trust and build a long-term relationship based on integrity, professionalism, and transparency.

With experience in Conventional mortgages, downpayment assistance, First Time Home Buyer Programs, and Government-Backed Mortgages like FHA, VA, and USDA. Jumbo Mortgages, Mortgage Refinance, Manufactured Housing, Home Purchase, and Disaster Recovery. I will take the time to understand your specific needs and work with you to find the best loan program for your requirements and budget.

When you're ready to take the next step toward purchasing your first home, please contact me to schedule a consultation, and let's begin your journey to homeownership!
