Kim is a Senior Loan Officer out of New Orleans, LA. After a successful career in hospital administration, she made the move into the mortgage industry, where she has flourished over the past 20 years. Kim loves lending and the magic she helps make for people. “Seeing the look on people’s faces when they get the keys to their new home is so wonderful…a very rewarding feeling of accomplishment. It never gets boring or dull, as no two loans are ever the same.” She loves renovation lending and has spent six years learning its ins and outs at three of the top companies in the US, and the fact we do it in-house is amazing!
In her personal time, she loves listening to music, especially hot jazz and rock and roll. She also enjoys cooking, old movies, antiques, dog training, gardening (she has a giant courtyard) and people watching…which is alive and well where she lives in the heart of the French Quarter of New Orleans. Kim’s significant other is a wonderful man named Donald who is a retired New Orleans firefighter, and with whom she shares a wonderful daughter. Her pets are her babies! She has two fur babies, Maybelline the Dutch Shepherd and Kelly the German Shepherd.
