About Highlands Residential Mortgage

Your Family. Your Future. Our Focus.

Highlands Residential Mortgage was created in 2010 in the midst of uncertainty and rapid change in the mortgage industry. A group of like-minded seasoned veterans came together to create a company with an employee-focused culture. A culture that values its members both personally and professionally and a company built on the idea that the customer comes first! We believe Highlands Residential Mortgage is such a place. Our Mission to value people drives everything we do.

My Story

I have over 20 years of experience as a mortgage loan officer. My number one goal is to provide clear communication, low stress, and a positive experience on every mortgage lending transaction!

I have lived in Tennessee my entire life. I am a wife, and proud mother of three children: 23, 19, and 13. I am passionate about volunteering in my community and helping those who are less fortunate. I actively volunteer for the following local charities: Franktown Open Hearts and Shower Up Nashville.

In 2013, I made the tough decision to close my branch so I could spend more time with my family. I still wanted to originate loans and help individuals and families become homeowners. I just needed to find a company that I could trust to take care of my clients. In early 2014, I chose Highlands Residential Mortgage and have not regretted it one single day. Highlands allows me and my team the ability to constantly deliver a highly professional and low-stress lending experience for all of my clients.
