After returning from Vietnam in 1972, I started working as an Owner Operator of tractor and trailer driving coast to coast weekly ending up in 1980 running national interstate trucking company with 80 tractors and 300 trailers.  After selling the trucking company, I started working in the Gulf of Mexico, initially as a deckhand, but ending up as Ships Captain in the Merchant Marine with a Master’s license to operate vessels in any ocean.  In 1988 I returned to Ohio to operate a manufacturing company in Fairfield building mobile mammography and health screening vehicles for hospitals and Universities.  In 1993 I started a Construction and Renovation Company to build and remodel properties. 

Since 1998 I have been originating mortgage loans in Ohio focusing on “helping people others either will not or cannot help”.  Over the past 20 years many people who have been told they will “never” be able to own their own home have become homeowners with the help of Horizon Home Loans.

I am married and a father of three daughters; Stacey, Samantha and Sydney, affectionately known as the Triple S Threat S1-S2-S3. 

As the proud owner of two total knee replacements, I enjoy pedaling my bicycle 100-200 miles a week year round.  As my orthopedic surgeon said, either use them or lose them, knees that is.

I have been in the mortgage industry for over 25 years, starting in the title business and then transitioning to the mortgage side, approximately 15 years ago.   I’ve seen many changes in the industry over time and one thing remains the same and that’s our commitment to helping people make their dream of home-ownership reality.  

We are not a big bank or a big corporate company and I think that’s what makes us special, you are not just a number or a face you become family to us.  You can find me in the office Monday through Friday during normal business hours, ready and willing to help you any way I can.
I was born and raised in the Hamilton/Fairfield area and currently reside in Fairfield with my husband, Ken.  I have 2 sons and 3 beautiful grandsons.  In my free time, I love spending time with friends and family, I love to shop and my husband and I love to travel.
