Jay grew up in Lubbock, TX with his loving mother, father, and two older siblings. He attended Texas Tech University where he became a Bachelor of Science in Biology. Realizing his love for the medical field was fading, Jay decided to get his MBA instead.
Growing up with his parents in the hospitality industry, Jay joined the family business after college where he was an owner/manager of a Best Western Plus for several years.
Jay visited Phoenix, AZ many times throughout his hotel career. Flying in for training at Best Western's corporate headquarters, Jay fell in love with Arizona's vast mountain ranges and year-round sun.
Encouraged by several friends in the banking industry, Jay decided to step away from his family business to move to Arizona where he became a Mortgage Loan Originator. Jay has helped hundreds of families and individuals obtain financing for home ownership.
Today, Jay continues to help people purchase residential properties at Guaranteed Rate. His knowledge of the mortgage industry and personal experience with self-employed tax returns and profit & loss statements has allowed him to prosper as a VP of Mortgage Lending.
