My name is Danielle McAuliffe and I am a loan processor and assistant here at Lightning Home Loans. I’m a new mom, to our precious little boy Brooks. I love my family and love what I do.

Krista Kuehl

Office Manager and Executive Assistant

I joined Lightning Home Loans in 2020, and I have learned the many aspects of the mortgage industry from the ground up, since joining the team. I serve as the right hand for Adam McAuliffe and my responsibilities encompass three key roles: administrative/office manager, executive assistant and marketing director. I was drawn to this position because I enjoy all of the aspects of each of these three roles and the diversity the position offers. I truly enjoy planning, developing, implementing, and organizing new systems and processes and I received my Bachelors in Business Management from the University of Michigan. Rest assured, that I am here to assist you with all of your purchase and refinancing needs. In my spare time, I enjoy boating, crafting and being with my family and friends.


Megan Shelton

Loan Officer's Assistant

Hello I’m Megan! I am brand new to the mortgage world, but I am excited to be a part of the Lightning Home Loans team. My husband and I and our 3 dogs and 4 cats live in Flushing at our dream home with lots of land and views for miles. We lived in Colorado for 3 years and gained a lot from the experience but overall wanted to be back in Michigan to be around our families and get away from the city life. I graduated from Northwood University with a bachelors in Healthcare Administration. I also work as the Office Manager at a holistic healing center, Blue Lotus, in Flint Michigan. My husband and I both have a great passion for holistic health, and we enjoy sharing the knowledge we gain from that with our friends and family. I feel honored to be a part of this team and I am looking forward to my future here!
