I’ve been in varying management and sales relationship roles over the past 20 years, with the previous three years being in the mortgage industry. I watched as Mountain State Financial Group built a brand based on excellent customer service and making the home buying experience easier. They demonstrated a true commitment to those they serve. In addition, these people were having fun! I had to be part of this group.

Helping people achieve the dream of home ownership is a responsibility that I take very seriously. Robert and Seth understand that being a good neighbor, helping others, and caring for those we serve is part of who we are in North Dakota. For me, this partnership is a natural fit!

Although not a North Dakota native, I am a Midwest girl. We were fortunate to be able to relocate to Bismarck just over eight years ago. I have a fabulous and supportive husband and three amazing children. We also have an English Crème Golden Retriever, who is like our fourth child.

In my free time I love taking our 2014 ZL1 Camaro for drives (fast ones) and going to car shows. I’m a big fan of muscle cars. We’re also Vikings season ticket holders. Football season is so much fun!

Since learning about Mountain State Financial Group and its founders, with their philosophy of providing honest and outstanding pricing and service, I knew I wanted to be a part of it. Saving people time and money without extra fees and headaches aligned with exactly what I wanted to be able to offer my clients, friends, and family in North Dakota.

I grew up in Minot, ND and after high school I went to both UND and Minot State University. I have also lived in Bismarck for 22 years and have 2 great and beautiful kids that are my pride and joy. They are embarking on their “Adulting” stage in life, so I now get to sit back and watch them make their own decisions and choices, seeing if they listened to me when they were growing up!

I have been in Law Enforcement for 32 years and truly know it is part of my DNA. My “Blue Family” is just that, family. I am grateful, honored, and humbled from my time spent in my career with the people I have met. I have a passion, although some would call it an addiction, to riding my H~D motorcycle any chance I get.

I have a great group of friends that I ride with who have the same need for wind therapy. My other passion is anything that gets me in or on the water. I believe my integrity, strong work ethic, and love for helping people are beneficial for our customers. I work hard for my clients with purchase and refinancing needs. The personalized customer service we offer along with being available evenings and weekends is a game-changer in my mind. Let me help you with one of the biggest and most exciting purchases you will make and not only save you time and money but also make it as easy and fun as possible.

I grew up in Bismarck, ND and have lived here most of my life. I am a graduate of Bismarck High School and the University of North Dakota. I lived in Grand Forks for several years, where I met my wife, Amanda. After moving back to Bismarck in 2003, I worked as a Business Manager for 8 years. From there, I got into the housing business and have been doing it ever since.

I have been best of friends with Robert, Seth and a few other employees of Mountain State Financial Group since I was a kid. After, talking about joining the company for the last few years, I decided to take the leap. Knowing how successful, honest, and hardworking Robert and Seth have been in the financing world, it made it an easier decision to join MSFG. My wife and I have been blessed with 2 wonderful little kids- Ella and Eli. Away from work, I love spending quality time with my family and friends.

The best part of my working career has been building relationships with customers. I truly love knowing that I helped someone or a family get a new home. I believe if a customer puts their faith in me, it is my job to honestly and whole-heartedly find them the best loan for their needs. I am passionate about what I do and am always a quick phone call, message, or email away. Contact me any time for a free consultation. 701-214-8705

I am excited to join the Mountain State Financial Group family. And it is literally family. My cousin Bob is the President and sisters Tanya and Kara also work for the company. I have been in the financial services industry for over 10 years and client care and customer service have always been my primary focus. Buying a home is one of the biggest financial decisions you can make, and it can be a scary process if you do not have someone looking out for your best interest. My philosophy is to treat every client like I would want someone to treat my parents. My promise is to listen to your goals and provide a clear path on how to get you the best possible rate for your home.

When I’m not working, I enjoy traveling, spending time with family and friends, and watching football. I was born and raised in ND and went to school at NDSU so that makes me a HUGE Bison football fan. I have enjoyed watching the NFL teams where our Bison players end up. I live in Austin, TX but spend my summers in ND to be closer to my family and get out of the Texas heat.

I recently graduated college from Dickinson State University with a Bachelor’s degree in both Business Administration and Human Resources. I’m currently located in Bismarck and have been in the banking industry the last two years. When I was reached out to, I knew I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to work with Mountain State Financial Group. The whole team is knowledgeable and dedicated to providing the best possible solutions and services for our client’s needs. I’m beyond excited to take my career in a new direction with Mountain State.

I believe that my hard work ethic, passion for helping others and attention to detail will help this company continue to grow and keep moving in the right direction. I grew up in a small town, Napoleon, which is about an hour southeast of Bismarck. I’ve always enjoyed living in North Dakota as the people are caring, hard-working, and expect the best from everyone. For fun I enjoy hanging out with friends, watching and playing sports, and being on the lake. I undoubtedly have the oddest favorite NFL team of the group, as I have been a Tampa Bay Buccaneers fan my entire life.

The last decade-plus of my life has been dedicated to some variation in the customer service industry. I have worked in banking, insurance, childcare, electric, and most recently with a firm that specializes in jury research. I have gotten to know people, their families, and gained a unique understanding of the financial triumphs and struggles affecting their lives. A Mortgage, in most cases, is the most expensive and life-changing financial decision one makes. When I was approached about working with Mountain State Financial Group and spoke with Bob about the company’s founding and future, I honestly thought “Here is someone who cares about doing things right”. I strive to put my attention to detail, perfectionistic tendencies, and overall work ethic to the test so I can help make the home buying experience smooth and stress-free for our clients.

I was born and raised in North Dakota but relocated with my husband when he took a teaching position at a university in 2018. I have a huge extended family in North Dakota and lifelong friends around the country so I enjoy a good road trip to visit them whenever the travel bug hits (which is often). In addition to traveling, I love music, reading, dancing, crocheting, watching a good Korean Drama, and enjoying nature/hiking. Hiking highlight of my life so far is walking the Camino De Santiago pilgrimage in Spain (French Way) for about two months summer of 2019.

I have worked with people my entire life. Growing up with my family being heavily involved in our church and always being around new people I fell in love with working with people! I was a stay at home mom before I took this new job at Mountain State Financial Group and I am so excited to grow with the company! Mountain State has a reputation of taking care of their clients, they go above and beyond when it comes to helping clients find homes. They don’t seek their paychecks at the end of the month they seek to see clients get their dream homes!

My husband Ryan and I are from Bismarck, ND and we have two kids, a girl and a boy. We enjoy being together as a family as much as we can. We love going out for walks with our golden retriever, rock climbing, biking, playing at the park. Anything outdoors you can think of we enjoy doing as a family!

I am very excited to take my career to the next level with working for Mountain State Financial Group, I hope to become a licensed broker one day.

We welcome you to meet with us at any of our three locations. Please call today to schedule your visit!
