I am a seasoned mortgage loan specialist with deep roots in Saline County, where I was brought onto the Eagle Bank Mortgage team to help lead lending efforts in the Benton/Bryant area. I was born and raised in Haskell, Arkansas, where I attended Harmony Grove Schools. I later continued my education at the University of Central Arkansas, where I double-majored in Finance and Spanish. During my time at UCA, I studied abroad in Costa Rica as well as Manzanillo, Mexico, studying extensive Spanish language immersion. With a home in Bryant, AR I enjoy spending time with family and friends on any of our gorgeous lakes in Central Arkansas and am currently working to obtain my private pilot’s license.  I specialize in providing unique solutions to home buyers at all points in life.  I understand your mortgage is going to be one of the largest financial decisions you make in your lifetime, therefore your mortgage plan needs to be treated just as importantly as any other large financial decision you make.  I’m committed to providing the best customer service and experience in the state of Arkansas, and I focus solely on the unique needs of my clients. I don’t just want to get my clients into a house, I want to do it in the best way possible!
