This is My Story

I grew up in a large family living on and off military bases around the world. Moving to Hurricane Utah when I was 14, I soon fell in love with this beautiful state along with the goodness of its people. As I’ve set my roots in Utah I have become continually impressed with the innovative and entrepreneurial spirit of this community.

Early on I aspired to become a weatherman, studying meteorology as I attended Dixie College and the University of Utah. I’m fascinated with looking beyond the horizon and trying to understand what the future holds. The constant change in our weather patterns are not unlike the changes we encounter in the mortgage industry. While monitoring the skies remains a hobby, my professional life has focused on helping my colleagues and homebuyers navigate through various mortgage environments.

I’ve specialized in capital markets, product development, regulatory implementation, and operational leadership roles over the past 15 years. I’m passionate about establishing and maintaining strong working relationships with a focus on workplace integrity and an unwavering commitment to customer service.

I am proud to represent Utah Mortgage Loan Corporation, with a heritage of making home possible to Utah families for nearly 120 years, and also for the pioneering spirit we bring to the table today.
