I was born and raised in Scottsdale, AZ where I lived until I graduated from Arizona State University. I graduated with a B.S. in Marketing/Finance, and as soon as the opportunity presented itself I relocated to Orange County, CA. Looking back the only requirement I had was that it was in CA and close to the beach.
I began my career as a Financial Advisor before the market crashed in 2001, which by complete accident led me back to Arizona and into the mortgage industry in 2003. Since then I have never looked back and loved every aspect of the business I have worked in. In an effort to further my career, I completed my MBA in 2011 and then my CDLP in 2018 (Certified Divorce Lending Professional) and I can say this business never gets old and no single day looks like another. It is great for someone like me who always looks for a challenge.
At this point in my career, I really enjoy working with First Time Buyers and educating them on homeownership and all the excitement that comes with that first purchase. In my spare time, I travel as much as I can and like to go anywhere with a beach.
