Why am I a Mortgage Lender?

The reason I love being a mortgage lender is because there is no better feeling than the realization of homeownership, and I love experiencing that with my clients. Calling someone, or meeting them in person, to tell them that their home loan is approved is an awesome feeling. Helping people attain financial freedom and stability for their future is another great benefit of being a lender. 

My Experience

I have been in mortgage for about eight years. I joined FNBO in 2020 and prior to that, worked for an internet lender in Overland Park, Kansas, for seven years as a loan officer, processor, and a processing team leader. 

Interesting to Know

I spent 20 years in the Navy, retiring in 2007 and having served on ships during the first Gulf War and in the Middle East following 9/11.  I am an avid golfer and play as much as I can.  I am originally from Gibbon, Nebraska, so after 32 years, I am back within 15 miles of my childhood home!

Important Information

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.
