Born and raised in Boulder (go Panthers!), I have a zest for traveling the world, studying cultures, and understanding how people live. Eighteen years ago, I entered the mortgage industry with the desire to help home buyers easily navigate the complex lending system. I had been a homeowner for a few years and found the experience overwhelming and so incredibly important that I decided to make mortgages my profession. I believe that everyone should own a home, so I calmy and confidently work to find custom solutions to meet that goal. Buying a house is a huge financial decision (maybe the biggest in one’s life), and I make sure the financial side is easy to understand.

Maybe it goes back to my degree in Sociology from Texas A&M University that led me on this path to help people. That path has been a colorful journey (I also earned a degree in Horticulture) leading to thousands of homes that I’ve helped secure for new buyers. Prior to facilitating home loans, I spent ten years working with developmentally disabled adults.

I have worked for great mortgage companies over the years but transitioned to Planet Home Lending Boulder because of how we treat our clients. The management team has finetuned the lending process, where communication through all stages is key (and I like to over communicate). Receiving the Five Star Professional designation for nine years and being awarded Affiliate of the Year by Boulder Area Realtors Association qualified me to serve a three-year term on the Homeownership Committee for the City of Boulder’s Division of Housing, where I am helping to guide affordable home purchasing policies.

My 11 year old twin boys have turned me into a baseball fanatic, so you may see me cheering for Baxter and Cooper from the stands. Or I may be clapping at my 13 year old daughter Ella’s volleyball games. When my husband Darrell (Fairview Knight and teacher) and I are not traveling, gardening, or cooking with the kids, you will find us kayaking or walking our two English bulldogs, Aggie and Winston.
