What made you decide to be a BankSouth Loan Officer?
From a young age, I always knew I wanted to help people. I was just not sure how.
When I started in the mortgage industry back in 1992, I quickly learned that what we offered was much more than a transaction.
I was helping real people and their families be able to change their lives by owning a home where memories are made and cherished.
If you could be anywhere than your home state, where would you want to be? Why?
The beach! You realize how small you are when you are looking at how vast the ocean is and it brings me peace. It’s definitely my happy place!
What is something most people don't know about you?
One thing people don’t know about me is that I am adopted (so was my younger sister).
I was extremely fortunate to be raised by the 2 people I admired the most, my mom and dad (they are both passed away now).
The lessons of life they taught me along with the great example they showed of what it takes to have a lifetime successful marriage, I will always cherish.
