Starting out at Superior Mortgage as a Production Associate, I have integrated my passions and knowledge of the mortgage industry into my work. I then moved on to be an efficient and detail orientated Loan Processor. Loan processing taught me how to analyze loans in a way that would enhance my skills and understanding of the mortgage industry.
Since November of 2018 I have become a licensed Loan Originator and Branch Manager of the Superior Mortgage Fishkill Branch. Customer Service and meeting client’s needs is an expertise of mine and striving to get clients in their new homes is especially what motivates me day in and day out.
I grew up in Cornwall, NY, which then lead me to attend the National Sports Academy in Lake Placid, NY. From there I attended the University of Alaska at Anchorage and furthered my education experience at St. Lawrence University in Canton, NY, where I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Business and Economics. At St. Lawrence I was the MVP of the Division 1 Alpine Ski Team who also took part in numerous community service events throughout each semester.
My experience of working with real estate investors small and large has taught me the importance of using real estate as a tool for investing and gaining long term wealth. I will continue my real estate investment journey with the help and influence of my clients and talented co-workers. I am also passionate about skiing, photography, and any sport that takes place on the water.

Buying a home can be complicated and even intimidating at times, but it doesn’t have to be! Starting in the mortgage industry at a young age I learned the ins and outs of many kinds of programs including FHA, VA, USDA, and Conventional mortgages. What I also learned early on is that it is critical to be available for you and truly take the time to listen to you and your goal of homeownership. I’m here to communicate, educate, and advocate for you at every step in the home buying process.
Along with extensive knowledge of various kinds of mortgage programs, I understand how each program can fit in the current real estate landscape here in the Hudson Valley.
