My road in life took a while to figure out.
My mother told me I would be a teacher. My dad saw that I was good with numbers.
I found other employment processing in mortgage departments while still going to school.
I excelled in both of these in school and college.
I saw the freedom of loan officers vs. the constraints of being a processor and transferred positions.
While in high school and college I worked at a bank, starting as a teller ending in the mortgage dept.
Went into the communities, saw the need for advocacy & assistance and it became my passion.

Philosophy & Religion

Day to Day

I travel the state meeting new people and organizations (non profit and government) helping clients in the biggest financial decision of their life--purchasing a house. There are many aspects to my job from explaining the process of home ownership to guiding that person through the intricate process advocating their needs before an underwriter, and providing grant assistance, and realizing the dream of home ownership. It is very rewarding.

Advice for Getting Started

Here's the first step for high school students

You may not necessarily know what you want to be or will end up being in the future. Every career is looking for good communication skills and some type of business skillset--know how to budget, balance a check book, etc. Keep your options open and be like a sponge absorbing all the experiences around you. They all help to mold you into your career. Find your gift / talent and turn it into a skill that produces a job and then your job will become your career that you do because you love it.
