Reverse Mortgage Specialist

Office: 814-882-9426

Hello, and welcome to my website.

As a licensed reverse mortgage consultant with Finance of America Reverse LLC (FAR)—one of the nation’s leading reverse mortgage lenders—I am honored to serve homeowners age 62 and older in the Western Pennsylvania, Eastern Ohio,  Western New York and Northern West Virginia regions. I’m dedicated to helping them leverage the power of home equity to achieve greater financial independence. The best part of my job is helping my clients live a financially stress-free retirement lifestyle.

Before I started working in the reverse mortgage business, I was a traditional forward mortgage loan officer and worked in the banking and mortgage industry. I earned my Bachelor of Arts degree at Edinboro University of Pennsylvania.

When I’m not working with borrowers or educating people about reverse mortgages, I volunteer with the Times Old Newsies and as a member of the Big Brother Big Sisters Advsory Board as well as the Independent Council on Aging. I also enjoy gardening, fishing and metal detecting.

Please consider me a resource. I invite you to explore my website to learn more—and please contact me if you have any questions or would like a free reverse mortgage consultation. I’m happy to share my expertise, answer all your questions, and help you determine if a reverse mortgage is a good financial solution for you. And if so, I’ll guide you through the loan process, every step of the way.

Did you know?

According to a recent study, 53% of households comprised of people who are age 65 are “at risk” of not having enough funds to maintain their standard of living during retirement. And using a reverse mortgage can reduce that risk. 1

In recent years, reverse mortgages have become a smart and safe way for people age 62 and over to be better financially prepared for the future—and live more comfortably. This retirement financing tool can be used to:

  • Pay off existing mortgage or home equity loan
  • Supplement income
  • Reduce monthly expenses such as car payments or credit cards
  • Establish a cash reserve for future needs
  • Buy a home that better fits their life
