Helping people navigate home financing is in my blood. I enjoyed over a decade in the business together with my father and mentor, Ray Cohen, before his untimely death in June of 2013. I spent a few summers working in the family business and eventually could no longer ignore the full time calling in 2002. I earned my BS in Finance from the University of Illinois & MBA in Marketing & Management from NYU and enjoyed experience in the banking, consulting, and consumer packaged goods industry. I love helping people navigate the waters of home financing. I understand buying a home is the biggest financial decision of my client's lives so I am grateful to ease their stress and find the mortgage program that best fits their personal situation. I am a native of the North Shore and enjoyed living both in NYC and LA, but Chicago is truly my sweet home. As the mother of two small children and wife to a very supportive husband, I wear a lot of hats on any given day. I manage by trying to enjoy every moment whether that involves sports, the arts, exploration or playdates. I also enjoy the theater (live and on the big screen), dining out and traveling. I've been called an avid White Sox fan from time to time as well.
