Ellen started working in the mortgage industry in 2007 after graduating from the University of Northern Iowa with degrees in Finance and Real Estate. She began her career as a mortgage loan originator, but due to a passion for improving the mortgage process, transitioned into a role in mortgage operations. Her experience in all stages of the mortgage process means less surprises and an overall better client experience. Ellen spent 10 years in the Twin Cities and still serves clients in that market, along with the Dubuque Tri-State area. She strives to provide personalized service by focusing on the long-term relationship with her clients and referral partners, not just the transaction. Ellen is licensed to originate loans in Minnesota, Iowa, Indiana, Illinois and Wisconsin.
