Title: Team Loan Officer
I am originally from the Midwest and moved to Arizona when I was a teenager. I received my associate’s degree in Business Management from Mesa Community College, while working 50+ hours a week simultaneously. Instead of pursuing another degree at a four-year college, I decided to continue working and it’s been the greatest decision leading me to my calling in mortgages.
I began my career in underwriting and learned all the ropes while running a $16 million pipeline from disclosures to funding. Since I have worked in nearly every aspect of the industry and pride myself on fixing anything that needs help. As the team lead on The Bates Team, I bring a bit more TLC to every transaction.
My true passion, however, is horses. I have a horse and recently got back into competitive jumping after breaking my leg and having to take a few years off. I am also married and have a two-year-old daughter. Family is very important to me and my parents and my sister’s family live in our neighborhood, so we are able to have regular get-togethers including weekly swimming and dinners.
