I was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri. Growing up I had two passions – sports and music. Coached by my father, I spent most of my childhood running from one sporting event to the other or watching my little brother’s games. I played baseball competitively until a shoulder injury kept me away from the diamond. To this day I continue my passion for music by playing locally and around the Midwest. That’s where you’ll find me at my happiest – either behind a drum set or sitting next to a client at the closing table. Finance is a family business for me – I got my start in banking at the young age of 16 where I began my journey to where I am today.
I started working at a small, locally-owned bank in University City, MO where I began to master the principles of retail banking, finance, and most importantly customer service. After moving to Columbia in 2010 to further pursue my education at the University of Missouri I began working for another locally-owned financial institution. I spent nearly 6 years working for Landmark Bank, beginning as a teller and working my way up to Assistant Banking Center Manager where I excelled in personal lending.
After graduating with honors from the University of Missouri in 2014 with a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology I moved into mortgage lending at Veterans United where I discovered my passion for serving others by investing in their future through homeownership. I began my journey with USA Mortgage in May of 2019 where I’ve been serving and providing Missourian’s with their mortgage needs. I take great pride in the job that I do each day as I help our community grow stronger through homeownership.
