How did you get involved in the mortgage industry?
I was approached by a former co-worker about an opportunity to work for a Mortgage Broker in Kansas City and began there in 2002.
What is the biggest challenge or opportunity you have seen in the mortgage industry? The biggest challenge is staying on top of the changes that are continuously happening and the biggest opportunity is all of the great people I have been able to meet and form relationships and friendships with that may not have happened otherwise.

Do you have a quick tip for saving time, generating leads, tracking information, etc. that you would like to share?
Organization is key!

Spending time with family and friends and watching my son in all of his sporting activities!
