What are you passionate about in your role? I really enjoy getting to know my customers and their needs and then working closely with them to find the mortgage product that serves them best.
What are some of your hobbies and interests? I love to ski and go to the beach. I’m big on the gym and go to the Greendale YMCA every day after work. I love working in my yard and I have a great garden. My mother-in-law lives next door and we enjoy working in the yard together.
Are you involved with any community causes or organizations? I’m involved with Realtor Association of Central MA (RACM)
Can you tell us a fun fact about yourself? I grew up in California where most of my family remains. My first job was as a Page at CBS in LA. I loved it! They assigned me to Price is Right where I did many tasks including writing out all those name tags. I also answered phones in the director’s booth at The Young and the Restless. It wasn’t very glamorous, but I sure got to meet a lot of interesting people.
