Personal Background

I am originally from Ohio, my husband and I moved to the Tri Cities in 2014. We love the 300 days of sunshine and the proximity to all the great hiking and skiing in the Pacific Northwest.

How long have you been in the mortgage business?

I have been in the mortgage industry for two years. Prior to that I worked as a Realtor for a local builder.

What's the best thing about your job?

The best part of my job is that in the mortgage industry is there is always more to learn!

Who is one of your heroes and why?

My Grandmother because of her kindness and compassion for others. She taught me the importance of integrity and doing the right thing.

Unique Skills

My ability to multitask, which is essential for my job since I am coordinating with so many people on each loan, while working on multiple loans at any given time.

Activities of Interest

Traveling, skiing, reading, hiking, and spending time with my husband and our dog.

Favorite Monopoly Piece

The thimble or iron, because I like to sew, and everyone else always wants the dog.

A Word From My Clients

"As an Account Executive for the #1 wholesale lender in the country I get to work with brokers all across the nation and I would highly recommend Desert Canyon to anyone looking to purchase or refinance. I have been working with Desert Canyon Mortgage for over 3 years. Year after year, they consistently close loans in 21 days or less! They continuously provide transparency and reliability throughout the entire loan process to their clients making closing loans with them simple and easy. I would recommend them to my own family members and I look forward to our continued partnership."


"Our Realtor, Denise Swanson, referred us to Jim at Desert Canyon and he was so wonderful. We had a closing date that was very close and Jim and his team worked day and night to meet our closing date. Beyond that, he even saved us $5k in closing costs and dropped out interest rate over 2%. The team there is caring, honest, and hardworking! We couldn't have been happier that we switched to Desert Canyon. Thank you Jim and your team for getting us into our new home! We would recommend you to anyone shopping for a mortgage company! We'd give you 100 stars if we could! 5 just isn't enough!"
