Click here to learn more about me.

Originally from Melbourne, FL, I attended the University of South Florida where I earned a B.A. in Psychology and a B.S. in Behavioral Healthcare. In 2014, I relocated to Colorado to pursue an M.A. in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from the University of Northern Colorado, where I had the pleasure of meeting my husband. With a passion for traveling and experiencing different states, my husband and I decided to move to Orlando, FL in 2017, where we spent a few years exploring new career opportunities, getting married, and expanding our furry family to include six dogs. Seeking a change of scenery and a larger property, we eventually moved to Raleigh, NC in January 2020. Unfortunately, just a month after our move, the COVID-19 pandemic struck, and we found ourselves isolated in a state where we had no friends or family nearby. However, an unexpected opportunity arose when the mortgage broker who assisted us with our North Carolina mortgage posted a job opening for an administrative assistant. Remembering our positive experience with the company and intrigued by the mortgage industry, I reached out to the owner and gradually worked my way up from an admin position to becoming a Licensed Senior Loan Partner over the course of two years – spending the first year in the North Carolina office and the subsequent year working remotely from Sanford, FL. Although I appreciated the flexibility of remote work and the chance to be closer to family, I realized that I would ultimately be happier in a traditional office environment, which prompted me to seek a position at Florida Home Loans. When I’m not spending quality time with my husband and our current pack of five pups (RIP Duke), you can find me cooking dinner for friends and family, immersing myself in fiction novels, enjoying the magic of Magic Kingdom and Epcot, or simply unwinding by the pool.

Calculator Result Definitions

  • Rate
    • The interest rate is used to calculate the interest owed on a loan.
  • Discount/Rebate (%/$)
    • Discount points are additional funds paid at closing to reduce your interest rate. Rebate is money credited to your closing costs in exchange for a higher interest rate.
  • Monthly P&I
    • Principal and Interest payment includes a payment to reduce the balance of your loan as well as to pay the accrued interest.
  • Total Payment
    • This payment includes principal, interest and mortgage insurance premium, when required. If an escrow account is required or requested, your actual monthly payment will also include amounts for real estate taxes and homeowner’s insurance premiums.
  • APR
    • APR is the annualized cost of a loan— including fees. Like an interest rate, the APR is expressed as a percentage. Unlike an interest rate, however, it includes other charges or fees such as mortgage insurance, most closing costs, discount points and loan origination fees. The APR is intended to give you more information about what you’re really paying. The Federal Truth in Lending Act requires that lenders always disclose the APR. Since all lenders must follow the same rules to ensure the accuracy of the APR, borrowers can use the APR as a good basis for comparing certain costs of loans. (Remember, though: Your monthly payment is not based on APR, it’s based on the interest rate on your promissory note.)
