I attended the University of Kansas and earned a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Computer Science. After many years in the corporate world, I decided to pursue an opportunity to help people and be in business for myself. I started Crown Home Inspections in 2003. I enjoy helping buyers make sound decisions on the purchase of their new homes. Every day is a new adventure because you never know what you are going to see. In my free time, I enjoy fishing and traveling. I’m a Royals, Chiefs and Kansas Jayhawks fan.

I previously lived in St. Louis and owned my own property inspection business.  My family and I made the decision to move to Kansas City so that we could be close to my wife’s  parents.  As part of the move I sold my St. Louis business and joined the Crown Home Inspection team. This had been a great fit for me.  My time away from work is spent with my wife Carrie and my two sons enjoying kayaking, hiking, camping and other adventures.  When it comes to sports I love the Baseball Cardinals and the Kansas City Chiefs.  Kansas City is a great place to live and raise a family.

I attended Olivet Nazarene University with a Business of Arts in Business and minor in Management.  After an aptitudes test revealed that being a home inspector would be a good fit, I attended ASHI training and became qualified as a home inspector.

 

My wife and I have two children.  When I am not inspecting homes, I’m installing Christmas lights as a small business owner of Midwest Holiday Creations.  I also enjoy shooting, doing puzzles, camping, and being outdoors.

I graduated from the University of Kansas with a degree in Business Administration. Prior to joining Crown Home Inspections, I managed a portfolio of properties in the Midwest that included commercial and residential locations. I have also bought, rehabbed, and sold multiple houses giving me extensive experience of the systems in a house. I enjoy working with our clients and providing them with the knowledge they need to make an informed decision on their new home purchase. When I’m not doing inspections, I enjoy spending time with my Family and Friends.

I’ve lived in the Kansas/Missouri area for the past 16 years and I’m KC proud. Go Chiefs! My career path lead me to becoming a home inspector with Crown Home Inspections because I have a vast experience in the service and home building industry along with a pure passion for really wanting to help people. I truly enjoy that I give home buyers the information they need when making a home buying decision.

 

When I’m not inspecting, I spend my time with my family, dogs, and creating memories outdoors.

Client Care Coordinator

Prior to joining Crown Home Inspections, I worked as a real estate marketing assistant and listing coordinator throughout the Greater Kansas City metro area. A Liberty, Missouri native, I returned to school to earn my floral design certification at JCCC (I’m a plant and flower enthusiast!). I am currently pursuing my B.S. in Environmental Studies, with an emphasis on sustainable building and green city planning. When I’m not coordinating inspections in the office, I enjoy interior design, perusing floral markets, and spending time outdoors with my partner John and our two dogs, Ferris and Cameron.

In 2014, I had an opportunity to join a local small business run by great people who work every day to help homebuyers protect their biggest investment and I jumped at the chance! My position with Crown Home Inspections is a great fit for me. Why? I really like people – helping them, supporting them, educating them and protecting them. At Crown, I do that by sharing information about home inspections, providing training on business/leadership skills, partnering with real estate agents, and giving homebuyers information and peace of mind.

 

My passion is volunteering and I spend most of my free time helping organizations including the Junior League of KCMO, Reach Out and Read, and BVPAGE. I also dabble in my garden, read books, and watch sports (especially the Kansas Jayhawks) with my husband and three sons.
