Why am I a Mortgage Lender?
I enjoy fact-finding and asking the right questions at the beginning of the process. I am here to ensure the best mortgage product is recommended based upon my clients’ situation, aspirations and goals. Whether it’s a first-time home buyer, or a family up- or down-sizing, I pride myself on the personal service and attention that I bring to every transaction. I also pride myself on my work ethic, exceptional communication skills, and the fact that I always answer my phone (or return calls promptly) days, nights and weekends to make sure my clients feel supported.
A home will typically be the largest financial investment in someone’s lifetime. Naturally, that means that getting a mortgage can be emotional and stressful. In my more than 20 years of serving homebuyers, I feel that I have perfected the mortgage experience to eliminate unnecessary stress. I take great pride in serving others, and my goal is to make the process simple, provide an enjoyable experience so clients can focus on what’s really important…making their major purchase into a home they love.
I'm based in Omaha, Nebraska but work with clients looking to purchase/refinance real estate in 31 states: Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky¸ Maryland, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, New Jersey, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania¸ South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Virginia, Washington, Wisconsin, Wyoming
To ensure the most seamless and positive experience for our mortgage customers, my loan officer assistant, Fe Hand, is also here to support the entire process. Passionate about delivering superior customer service; she goes above and beyond for our clients.
I entered the mortgage business in 2002, and since then, I've held roles including loan officer, branch manager, vice president of sales and operations, as well as co-owner of a mortgage subsidiary for a state chartered bank. I returned to loan originating in 2010, when I discovered I missed working directly with clients. I have been a top producer for FNBO for 8+ years running. Most recently, I was awarded Top 20 Mortgage Originator by the State of Nebraska.

1 First National Bank's Lock & Shop program locks the initial interest rate for 60 or 90 days on 15 and 30-year conventional, 30-year FHA and VA fixed-rate purchase loan products. Your exact interest rate will depend on the date you lock your rate. In order to obtain this rate, a fully executed purchase agreement must be received by First National Bank within 30 calendar days of a 60 day lock or 60 calendar days of a 90 day lock. You will have the option to extend the due date for the purchase agreement and the rate lock expiration one time by 15 days. In addition, you may exercise a float down in the rate to the current market rate within 7 calendar days of executing a purchase contract. Please contact your loan officer to exercise this float down option. Additional fees, conditions or exclusions may apply. This is neither a commitment to lend nor an approval of the loan inquiry. Any change in rate or fees may affect approval of the loan.
