I am a proud Midwesterner by birth, but my journey has taken me to the beautiful Pacific Northwest. In 1992, I was stationed in Bremerton, Washington, serving as a Lieutenant in the JAG Corps for the U.S. Navy. After four years of dedicated service, I transitioned into private law practice in Seattle, specializing in estate planning and probate.
In 1998, inspired by my younger brother, I ventured into the mortgage industry. This career shift ignited a passion within me for assisting customers with their home financing needs. Over time, I phased out my law practice, dedicating one hundred percent of my professional efforts towards mortgages.
By 2006, I decided to focus solely on reverse mortgages in Seattle, Bellevue, Kirkland, and the surrounding Washington areas. It brings me immense satisfaction to help seniors secure a comfortable life within their own homes — often the ones they’ve owned for more than 40 years, where their grandchildren come to visit!
To me, education is paramount. Once common misconceptions are dispelled, most seniors appreciate understanding how these financial tools truly work!
When I’m not working, you can find me at the Mount Vernon Farmers Market, enjoying the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival, biking on the Centennial Trail, or attending the Skagit County Fair.
I am an active member of several organizations including the North Puget Sound Association of Realtors (NPSAR), Mount Vernon Chamber of Commerce, University Kiwanis, Estate Planning Council of Seattle, Cascade Business Referral Group, and Chamber Connections Referral Groups.
I am licensed to offer reverse mortgage loans all along the west coast in California, Oregon, and Washington.
