How did you get involved in the mortgage industry?
I found an online job listing from RMN and submitted an application right around the time I graduated from the University of Iowa 5 years ago. Best decision I’ve ever made!

What is the biggest challenge or opportunity you have seen in the mortgage industry?
The biggest challenge to me is communicating in a manner that is both simple and detailed enough for customers to understand the benefit of one loan product over another.

What advice would you give people just entering the industry?
My advice is that you have to be willing to learn and adapt. It’s a long, difficult road to understand the mortgage language, but the learning never ends as the industry is constantly evolving.

When you are not at work, what do you like to do most?
I love to play golf.

What is a quote or a guiding principle you live by?
My guiding principle is simple: embrace adversity. Easy is boring.
