What do you enjoy doing in your free time? 

  • My kids are my number one hobby. Whether we are playing the newest Mario game on the Switch, eating pretend cake, or watching Frozen for the thousandth time. I really love spending time with my family.
  • I love to travel! We love getting out to new places.
  • I have an extensive collection of sports cards from the 1950s to today. I grew up a die hard Chicago Bulls fan, so Michael Jordan has always been one of my favorites to collect.

What is your personal motto or mantra?  

“You must expect great things from yourself before you can accomplish them.” – The GOAT Michael Jordan

What are you currently listening to and/or reading? 

I am a huge fan of classic rock and metal. But I will honestly listen to just about anything. Metallica’s Black album will always be my go-to.

What are three words you would use to describe Priority Mortgage?

Loyalty, Community-Driven, Home

What is your favorite local hang out?

Lombardi Pizza & Ice Cream off Route 23. It’s a really nice Mom and Pop Restaurant. We love to hang out here in the summer and enjoy some great ice cream!

What are your top 3 recommendations to first-time home borrowers based upon your processing experience?

  1. Don’t settle. This is a long-term commitment. You don’t want to move in and not feel satisfied with your decision.
  2. Save and budget now and after you close.. It’s clearly important that you make sure to save for a down payment and budget appropriately for your payments. However, many people overlook a savings plan once they’re in the house. Unexpected repairs, projects, and upgrades you’d like to accomplish are going to need you to leave some monthly cushion. Plan appropriately.
  3. Leverage down payment assistance programs if you can! This helps you keep a little extra cash in your pocket for emergencies.
