I started my career as a loan officer about 1.5 years ago when I moved to Portland OR with my (then) fiancé from Nashville TN, where I practiced law for 13 years and was the Managing Partner of a regional Law Firm. In that time, I won several awards, including being recognized as a “Super Lawyer.” Since moving across the country, we have recently married and have a baby on the way. I have a marketing degree from the University of Maryland and a JD of Law from the University of Tennessee. My background allows me to gather information and use logical problem solving to find solutions where others only see obstacles. As an attorney, I am a detail-oriented individual which is critical to ensuring that a borrower’s information is handled carefully and presented accurately when making the most important buying decision of their lives. In my spare time I enjoy playing being outdoors, especially hikes with my two dogs (a rhodesian ridgeback and a blue heeler), skiing/snowboarding, and soccer.
