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. In October of 2018 I became a licensed Loan Originator as I am still processing loans for our clients. 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 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. I am passionate about the mortgage industry, skiing, photography, and any sport that takes place on the water.
Born & raised in the Hudson Valley, Kate’s love for the area and its people is evident in her work. After a successful few years working as a mortgage closer, Kate took on the roll of Loan Originator and has found her passion in this side of the loan process. She finds great satisfaction in working with both first-time homebuyers and repeat purchasers, and commits to giving exceptional customer service from an application, to closing, and beyond. Working with PrimeLending, Kate is able to offer each customer an individualized experience and has the top technology and applications to make the process seamless. What sets Kate apart from many other industry professionals is her ability to create real relationships with each of her clients, and her commitment to making sure each of them feels empowered to play an active roll in the biggest purchase of their lives.
