And then you’ll receive support from one of the most highly experienced operations teams I've ever worked with. We work collaboratively to make sure you are completely satisfied with your transaction.

My career started in the title industry, but I soon transitioned to helping people with their mortgage needs. Now more than 30 years later, I can say I've learned the mortgage industry from the ground up. It's fun and rewarding for me to help clients buy their homes. 

I'm a member of both the San Patricio County Association of Realtors and the Corpus Christi Association of Realtors. Over the years, I've been recognized as the ‘Affiliate of the Year’ in San Patricio three times. And the Corpus Christi Association of Realtors awarded me the ‘Affiliate of the Year’ in 2018.

As the Senior Mortgage Loan Officer at American Bank, I'm experienced with all loan processes and mortgage programs. I'm excited and ready to help you finance the home of your dreams and continue to fulfill the vision of American Bank.

Just as no two wish lists are the same, no two home loans are identical. My goal is to find a financial solution that perfectly matches my clients' needs. I enjoy building lasting relationships by providing the best customer service possible and becoming the familiar face that my clients can trust. I will help you with every step in the process, from determining your budget to applying for a loan and closing on your home. I will be there for you. My clients are always my top priority.

I have several years’ experience in the banking and financial services industry, so you can count on me to help make your home dreams happen! As a graduate of Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi, I still live in Corpus with my husband, two children, a dog, a cat and some fish. When I’m not busy helping clients with their mortgage needs, I spend time with my family enjoying our Sparkling City by the Sea!

I'm passionate about building relationships with clients who are ready to build their dream home. Having been a lender in Austin since the mid-1980s, I bring a wealth of expertise to the loan process and strive to make the experience stress free for each client.

As an ABOR approved instructor, I have taught courses on Building a Custom Home to Realtors and agents. I prioritize the needs of each client while providing excellent service which has made me the “go to” referral source for many builders in the Austin market. I'm happy to be a resource to anyone contemplating construction financing.
