I have been in the mortgage industry since graduating from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 1998 with a BBA Degree in Marketing and Management. Starting out as a Loan Officer Assistant and working my way up to a Branch Manager helped propel me to becoming a multiple award-winning Loan Officer and leader at a number of mortgage companies throughout my career. From 2001-2016, I was a consistent President’s Circle Award Winner with Wintrust Mortgage, Professional Mortgage Partners, Millennium Financial, Lakeshore Funding. In 2012, 2013, 2014 at Wintrust Mortgage I qualified as a top producer both as a Loan Officer and as a Branch Manager. Additionally, I received an important honor when I was nominated for the Chicago Agent Magazine “Who’s Who” Award in 2015.
Growing up in Iowa City, Iowa, my Grandfather had a big impact on me at a young age with his approach to helping others unconditionally and paying it forward. Today, I am passionate and purposeful about providing a world class lending experience for my team, referral partners, and customers. In January of 2017, I proudly joined the LeaderOne family while combining forces with Eric Lovins to open up a branch in the Ravenswood neighborhood of Chicago. This dynamic leadership position offers an entrepreneurial opportunity to build and lead my own team while helping people make their dreams a reality. In my free time, I enjoy traveling, cheering on the Chicago Cubs and spending quality time with my wife and four children.
