I am an Iowa native who was born and raised in Des Moines and a proud graduate of East High School! Real estate has always been a dream of mine so I earned my license in 2011 and enjoyed serving clients until 2014. Since then I have been on the mortgage/finance side of the business and received my loan originator license in the fall of 2017. I have learned so much about the financing and what goes on behind the scenes during a real estate transaction. I am so excited to be back at real estate and know that the knowledge I have gained will be a great asset to serve my clients and make sure their transaction is as worry free as possible! I look forward to teaming up with you and helping make your dreams come true! I currently reside in Urbandale with my two daughters, Lucy and Gwen. If I am not working, I am with them doing things around town, going to the movies, spending time with family and baking yummy desserts!
