I enjoy people. I love working with them and assisting with their financial needs. WaFd Bank is a great company that allows me to provide exceptional service along with great products. I specialize in residential mortgage lending and business banking. I assist clients in learning what they are needing to be successful in the business and what they are needing in a home. I love meeting new people and learning what their needs are and then being able to help them obtain that goal.
I have volunteered for many years with Junior Achievement. I have enjoyed going into the classrooms of my children and grandchildren and teaching them about banking. To see them learn of the different ways in which the financial industry affects their lives is amazing. I have also volunteered with the Sugar House Chamber, Boy Scouts of America and United Way.
I am married and have 3 children and 4 grandchildren. I love having my children and grandchildren around. I enjoy all kinds of crafts. My favorite thing to do is to take long rides in the mountains on my motorcycle.
