Academy Mortgage — Anchorage/Fairbanks/Palmer/Wasilla, Alaska

I am passionate about creating a Trusted Advisor relationship with my clients. Knowledge is power and I strive to provide as much understanding to the mortgage process as possible. Mortgage loans are an integral part of an overall financial plan and I work tirelessly with my borrowers to craft a custom loan plan to best meet their individual needs. With over 12 years of experience in mortgage lending, coupled with my prior business experience and education, I am uniquely equipped with the knowledge, skills and abilities to help each customer achieve their goal of homeownership. I joined Academy Mortgage Alaska in 2011 to partner with a company aligned with my personal goals. We are committed to integrity-based mortgage lending, an unwavering commitment to responsible lending practices, and offering a broad portfolio of mortgage solutions and tools to our clients. Our Purpose is to promote a culture that Inspires Hope, Delivers Dreams, and Builds Prosperity. I approach each client as if they are a family member, treating them as I would want my family to be treated.

I have helped thousands of Alaskans attain the dream of homeownership. I am uniquely equipped to help every type of homebuyer from the first-time homebuyer, to the savvy real estate investor. Working with my dedicated team, I personally oversee the entire loan review process. The team I have assembled allows us to focus on each team members’ unique strengths, leveraging that into the best service possible. I specialize in FHA, VA, USDA, Conventional, HUD 184, Alaska Housing Finance Corporation (AHFC) Programs and Grants, including the Closing Cost Assistance Program (CCAP).


As a mortgage lender, the ability to offer AHFC loans is not a guarantee, it is a highly coveted opportunity. I worked for more than 7 years to bring the Alaska Housing portfolio of loan programs to Academy Mortgage. My primary focus was, and always will be, to be ensure my clients have access to as many loan programs as possible. Alaska Housing expands my “tool box” to include an investor that understands the Alaskan borrower, their unique needs, and the many varied challenges Alaska real estate brings to the home mortgage process. Alaska Housing is a GREAT partner helping deliver the dream of sustainable homeownership, by inspiring hope and building prosperity in the families and communities we serve.
