Lending Advisor

For me, working for Neighborworks Home Partners is a perfect culmination of my career goals.  Chance landed me in mortgage, my heart pushed me towards the non-profit world.  As a Lending Advisor I love underwriting loans and being a huge part of borrowers achieving homeownership.   In my spare time, I enjoy taking circus classes and being a dedicated photographer who loves bragging about taking the staff photos.View Contact Info

I’ve worked in nonprofits for over 4 years, with the last two focused on teaching overall financial wellbeing. My knowledge of financial products includes Islamic banking and finance. I relate to many stories of the communities NeighborWorks Home Partners serves, which is one of the reasons of why I choose to work here.…View Contact Info

Even as a young girl, I enjoyed touring homes and imagining how to enrich the functionality and aesthetics. My background is in design and construction and I have a strong desire for functional beauty. The majority of my 20+ year career has been working for non-profit, community-based housing organizations. It is very gratifying to help others realize their dream of homeownership and build relationships with community members while positively affecting neighborhoods.…View Contact Info

I am a lending administrator, which means I can do whatever is asked of me. More specifically I administer our down payment assistance.

I am new to the housing sector after advocating for an equitable transportation system in Minnesota, working in employment counseling, and interpreting and translating.  I’m a native Spanish speaker who is a second-generation American, raised on the West Side by parents who emigrated from Chile.   I was drawn to NeighborWorks Home Partners because I care about building stronger communities and am eager to help address the generational wealth gap in the Twin Cities and help people navigate homeownership.  …View Contact Info

I am new to the housing sector after advocating for an equitable transportation system in Minnesota, working in employment counseling, and interpreting and translating.  I’m a native Spanish speaker who is a second-generation American, raised on the West Side by parents who emigrated from Chile.   I was drawn to NeighborWorks Home Partners because I care about building stronger communities and am eager to help address the generational wealth gap in the Twin Cities and help people navigate homeownership.  I live right here in Frogtown with my cat, Cabezón, a neighborhood stray who adopted me as his own. I’m slowly turning almost every square foot of my backyard into food producing space, and divide my spare time between cooking, music, and gaming.

Soy nuevo al sector de la vivienda después de haber trabajado en el área de defensoría del tránsito público, consejería de empleos, y traducción e interpretación. Soy hispanohablante, americano de segunda generación, y criado en el barrio ‘West Side’ de padres que emigraron de Chile. Me atrajo NeighborWorks Home Partners porque me apasiona mucho crear comunidades más fuertes, y estoy muy entusiasmado de poder mejorar las disparidades de riqueza gestacional en las ciudades mellizas, y de ayudar a la gente en ser dueño de casas. Vivo aquí mismo en Frogtown con mi gatito Cabezón, un gato callejero que me adoptó a mí. Poco a poco estoy convirtiendo mi patio entero en una huerta para producir comida, y el resto de mi tiempo libre me lo paso cocinando, tocando y escuchando música, y jugando.

Lending Advisor

As a lending advisor my role is to guide homeowners to the right solution for their home improvement needs. I have worked in nonprofit home improvement for nearly two decades after realizing I was passionate about meeting our community’s need for stable and safe housing. I love helping homeowners get the repairs they need – such as a new furnace, fixing a leaking roof, or replacing lead paint-covered windows – and am thrilled to know that with every loan I close I am enriching that family’s life and the long-term value and integrity of their home.View Contact Info

From assisting families to find emergency shelter to helping families buy their first home – the importance of the basic need for housing is present. I was born and raised and currently live in St. Paul with my wife and kids and what I love most about working at NeighborWorks Home Partners is driving through the neighborhoods where I live and work and seeing the difference we are making each and every day

As a Realtor I have always enjoyed looking at homes and helping people find the right home. I enjoy working for an organization that emphasizes the importance of homeownership and assists people to reach their homeownership goals. My passions outside of work include sports (watching and playing), and trying new restaurants/breweries in MPLS/Saint Paul area, especially if they’re dog friendly.View Contact Info
