I'm here to offer my professional experience and knowledge to help you achieve your Real Estate goals!
Born and raised on a farm in Western Illinois, I learned the value of good, hard work at a young age. I attended Culver Stockton College and received a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration in 2002. After graduation, I became an independent distributor for Vector Marketing/Cutco Knives and learned valuable lessons about running my own business. With a young family, I eventually transitioned into the world of banking. That led me to Busey Bank in Decatur, IL, where I have resided since 2002.
Although I primarily worked in Commercial Lending, my banking experience included retail/consumer loans, branch management, commercial cash management, commercial lending, and investments. The experience I gained as a Commercial Relationship Manager provided experiences that help me every day. While working to support my family, I earned my Masters Degree in Business Administration from Millikin University in Decatur, IL. I also attended the National ABA Commercial Lending School in Dallas, TX, and have taken various Illinois Bankers Association (IBA) courses.
Happy to call Decatur home for my family, I am committed to contributing to the community in which I earn a living. I currently serve as an elected Commissioner for the Decatur Park District and on the executive board for the Millikin Decatur Commission.
My career in real estate sales began in October 2013. The substantial experience I bring from my years in banking, particularly lending, has proven to be an excellent asset when serving my clients. In 2019, I furthered my real estate expertise by earning my CCIM Designation (Certified Commercial Investment Member) to better serve my clients and the community. This designation provides an outstanding network of real estate professionals and ongoing educational opportunities.
My knowledge and familiarity of Decatur and Central Illinois, combined with my financial and analytical skills, provide multidimensional service for my clients. My goal is to make every transaction I am involved in a positive experience and establish long-term relationships.
