How did you get involved in the mortgage industry?
My father has been in the business since I was a young girl – I worked in the business while I attended The University of Iowa and well, I got hooked!
What is the biggest challenge or opportunity you have seen in the mortgage industry?
The biggest challenge is getting the right information out to customers about loan programs – fixed vs. ARM – VA vs. Conventional etc. Not all lenders support all programs and borrowers are often fed information that isn’t quite accurate. My passion is educating borrowers with the right information, which is also an opportunity.
What advice would you give people just entering the industry?
Make friends within in the business – you will need them!
When you are not at work, what do you like to do most?
I love to spend time with my family, which includes following our four girls to their various activities or relaxing at our lake house.
What is a quote or a guiding principle you live by?
Work hard every day.
