My illustrious yet short-lived drama/dance career included Rutgers University’s Mason Gross School of The Arts and Alvin Ailey School in NYC. I performed at the Performing Arts Center in Newark, NJ along with multiple off-Broadway plays. I quickly learned that there is nothing in this world like the feeling of helping someone who is in need; whether it’s bringing joy to a person watching a play, comfort to a person requesting food/beverage or hospitality, or assisting a family looking to attain financial security through assets.

After working in New York City for the past 15 years with fortune 500 companies I have come back to the Mortgage business to help families achieve their dreams of new homes and equity. I started writing mortgage loans in 2003 and instantly fell in love with how much of a positive impact I can make in someone’s life by securing their homes in seemingly impossible scenarios.

I am in awe of the “gold coast” area, which my family and I call home, and am confident that I can make a difference for existing and potential homeowners by building wealth and maximizing equity. My dedication to my clients and their needs will not stop at the closing table. I look forward to questions about moving preparations, childcare and schools, and home maintenance, or if you’d just like to chat. I pride myself on exhausting every option to provide quality pre-qualifications and lucrative refinancing that bring families peace of mind that their biggest asset is taken care of. The next step is making the dream come true, so give me a call.
