Meet Our Team
As a young adult trying to find her direction in life, I was faced with the same questions all adults eventually face. How can I buy a home? What can I do to get out of debt? How can I do both of these while still paying my bills and supporting my family? And the catch; how do I do all this on wages that just did not seem to go far enough?
These questions were the catalyst for the beginning of my journey… I enrolled in Alberta’s Mortgage Associates Program and completed my licensing in 2007. I studied mortgages with a fervor; learning the impact of and relationships between credit, budgets and investments and how they impact home ownership. I studied home construction, inspection requirements and procedures, insurance policies and how all this worked together to create what we all strive for in our lives… a balance.
Working full time as a Licensed Mortgage Broker in Alberta since 2007, I have seen a lot of ups and downs in our economy, interest rate changes and changes to mortgage financing rules and practices. Since then, I have had the opportunity and privilege of helping hundreds of people and families in various stages of their lives as they work toward home ownership; whether going through the process of buying their first home, refinancing mortgages, restructuring investments or sometimes even helping to rebuild their entire lives.
I have streamlined and simplified the financing process; anticipating the documentation and paperwork requested by lenders. I place you in the driver’s seat and help you find the mortgage product and lender that best suits your needs and requirements. In the end, you will be able to make a well informed decision about this very important purchase.
My children have all grown and now my husband and I spend our evenings with our fur babies, in the garden, exploring the beautiful river valley in the summer or skiing in Jasper in the winter. Alberta is a great place to live, work and play! We are achieving our balance in life.
I grew up in Alberta and most of my adult life has been spent in the service industry. In my home town of Fort McMurray, I started work at a local restaurant as a dishwasher and worked my way up to General Manager. After a few years I was presented with another opportunity as Service Manager at a major retailer. It was during my five years at this retailer that I completed my business diploma and was blessed with the birth of my first child, Jaxon. By now, time was simply flying by… work, school, being a dad… Life was good!
In 2003, a large transportation company recruited me for their management training program. Two years later I was transferred to Edmonton to look after their school bus division. Life started to get even busier and work demanded more of my time. I found myself working more and being less and less of a dad.
In 2006, my daughter, Jillian was born. In the blink of an eye she was turning two years old. It was at this moment that it hit me; I hardly knew my children at all! I had spent all my time working and so little time being a dad.
I realized that this was not the work/life balance that I so desired. Something had to change. I knew the service industry was where I belonged, working with the public, meeting new people and providing services to enrich their lives. The year was 2008. My new direction was born and I enrolled in the mortgage associates program and acquired my license as a Mortgage Broker.
