She’s always willing to jump in and help others, and her coaching and customer service training programs have been a key driver of our growth. We know she’ll do great things in this role and help us bring on more talented people throughout North Texas.”

She earned several national and regional awards, including being named to Scotsman Guide’s Top Originators rankings on multiple occasions and being voted ‘Best Loan Officer’ by the Herald Democrat every year since 2013.
