I was born and raised in the Chicago area, have two college aged children and now reside in North Suburban Chicago. Having graduated from Michigan State University as an Economics major, I was drawn to banking as a career. I have served clients of banks and finance companies such as Pioneer Bank, Balcor Mortgage Advisors and Norwest Bancorp for over the last 25 years. For the last five years I have specialized in reverse mortgages at Perl Mortgage. This has become the most emotionally rewarding time in my career. I continue to embrace practices which insures the highest level of professionalism and consumer information. I have pledged to deliver the same high level of personalized service to my Reverse Mortgage clients as I have to my traditional mortgage clients. This includes office or in home visits for family, friends, and trusted advisors and closings in your home, office, or at a title company convenient to you. I am a member of the Society of Certified Senior Advisors. CSA's are skilled in recognizing problems common to all seniors including physical, cognitive, financial, spiritual, end of life and family issues. We are equiped to provide and recomend resources beyond our particular field of expertise to help our clients find answers to their questions. In my spare time, I love discussing current events and music with my kids, playing guitar, and jogging. I have attended and raised money for many running events benefitting cancer research and heart disease. I would be honored to help you or your loved ones through the decision process of obtaining a Reverse Mortgage.
