My name is Ellen and I love what I do! I am passionate about helping people and finding the best deals possible. I am often tasked by friends and family to help them find more ways to save money and now that I am a loan officer that is an even easier task!

I have a family of three little boys, and my favorite things to do for fun are golfing, fishing, rock climbing, and baking – I even enjoy the occasional video game! I love being outside while enjoying the occasional glass of white wine. I aspire to write a book.

I graduated from Grand Valley State University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology. This background in psychology has prepared me for the world of sales, I love connecting with people and networking. I am excited to work with you! Let’s get started!



My husband and I LOVED working with Ellen! She was able to answer all our questions and address any concerns we had. She made everything go so smoothly. She’s the BEST loan officer; we highly recommend working with her!
