Get to know me

Representing the Pacific Northwest, I have over 15 years banking experience in the Community Association Industry specializing in complex association lending, reserve structuring, and specialty payments. Apart from my professional work, I am an active volunteer in the Washington State CAI (WSCAI) community. I enjoy spending quality time with my family, exploring the great outdoors, traveling, and reading.
