I grew up in the northern Chicago suburbs. I grew up playing and watching sports. I went to college at the University of Iowa. After Graduation, I worked in the global payroll industry for 2 years. I decided to transition into the Mortgage industry because I really wanted to make a difference in peoples lives and advise them with their biggest financial investment they will make in their lives. It has been an absolutely fulfilling experience. I currently live in Chicago in the Lakeview neighborhood.
