About Me 

I have a passion for real estate and financing and love helping others achieve their goals through in depth communication, education, and service. I was born and raised in Kearney, MO, just North of Kansas City. Graduate of Missouri State University with a degree in Finance and Real Estate. Lived in Kansas City from 2010-2016 with the privilege of working for one of the top real estate teams in KC, the Glennon Real Estate Experts, as a top producing agent in the KC metro for buyers and sellers. Currently reside in St Louis as a Loan Originator for Fairway Mortgage. My experience as a real estate agent (and now as a loan originator) allows me to have a full, comprehensive understanding of the entire home buying, selling, and financing process – so I can put my clients in the best position to assist in achieving their goals. I’d love to do the same for you!
