I have been involved in the financial industry as a mortgage professional since 2007 immediately following my post-secondary studies. I began post-secondary school at Lethbridge College where I received a diploma in Business Administration. I decided to further my education and received a degree from the University of Lethbridge in the Faculty of Management, majoring in Finance.

I have taken an active approach in my community by volunteering in the University of Lethbridge Alumni Association as well as the Kinette Club of Lethbridge and I sit as a senator on the University of Lethbridge Senate. I also participate weekly at the Lethbridge Curling Club.

I find it important to provide my independent, unbiased advice to ensure the correct product has been chosen to satisfy my clients’ personal needs. My local knowledge allows me to understand the area and lending capabilities.
