I have worked in the real estate finance industry since 1988. But when I started working in the reverse mortgage industry in 2003, I realized what a valuable asset the program is to our aging population. This is a niche near and dear to my heart. Iíve witnessed dramatic lifestyle improvements, and sometimes that simply means relieving financial stress from someoneís life.

Iíve had the privilege of guiding older homeowners through the reverse mortgage process. All of my clients are so thankful and relieved at what this program has done for their quality of life. I strive to educate people about the intricacies of this loan program, showing different ways to achieve their best solution. Getting to know my clients gives me insight into how to tailor the loan to specifically meet their needs.

I love to spend time with my family & friends. My parents and brothers still live close by so we spend a lot of time together. My daughter and her family are in Pasadena, so I make the trek to see my grandchildren (3) often!
