Welcome to my website

I am a native Houstonian and received my Bachelor’s degree in agricultural economics from Texas A&M with an emphasis in real estate.  I entered the mortgage business in 1994 and joined HomeTrust Mortgage Company in 1998.

I strive to provide a stress-free experience for clients and dispel the myth that the homebuying or refinancing process is time-consuming, complicated, or unattainable.  The keys to my success include working with a great team of professionals who are committed to great communication and customer service, as well as my strong work ethic and passion for what I do.  I enjoy building relationships with the client from start to close and take satisfaction in knowing that I helped make someone's dream become a reality.  I take great pride on having built a referral-based practice with referrals from builders, realtors, and homeowners.  I have several nominations and wins as “Best Loan Officer” by The Leader newspaper and look forward to being your best loan officer as well.

When not helping clients, I enjoy spending time with family and friends and following the Astros and Aggie football.  I am active in my neighborhood homeowner’s association, as well as the Dachshund Rescue of Houston.
