What do you love most about what you do?

I love interacting with people and problem solving!

Do you have any advice for women who want to succeed in the workplace/mortgage industry?

Find or create your passion in what you do and don’t be afraid to speak up.

How do you balance your work with your life?

It’s a constant juggle to balance work and life. Both sides are ever changing, and the plan seems to need constant updating. At this point in our lives being home for dinner and being able to shut down for those few hours when we are all together in the same place is a priority.

What do you think is the key for success in a role like yours?

Learning when to speak up and when not to, it is something I am still working on.
