I speak mortgage fluently - ask me a question!
As a Salem Spartan Alumni, my roots are planted here - and Freedom First allows me the opportunity to serve my neighbors and give back to my community. From processing to originating, my 14 years of mortgage experience provides a solid base for understanding and succeeding in the real estate market.
I love educating. I love being of service. I am a problem solver and solution-driven.
I earned the Platinum award for Mortgage Loan Officer in the Roanoke Valley HOME Magazine 2022 Readers' Favorites, and my expertise includes Conventional, FHA, Virginia Housing, and USDA mortgages. I had the honor of serving on the Roanoke Valley Association of REALTORS® Community Service Committee for the past 9 years, and I am also a founding member of Roanoke Professional Women for Good. I remain active in many volunteering events throughout our community.
Outside of work you will find me outdoors, volunteering, caring for my small farm, and cheering on my daughter in her horseback riding and travel basketball.
Come see how I can help you determine your best financial choices!
