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

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
