If you could write your own job title that best describes what you do here, what would it be and why?
Facilitator of People Empowerment. While I can’t take credit for assembling the team of AVP’s and Relationship Managers, we have a great group of people in place. Being able to channel their strengths in building deep, strategic partnerships to uncover challenges lenders are facing and providing solutions to make their lives easier.
What is something lenders/lending industry have to deal with that you want to fix?
Challenging and partnering with our clients to think differently and uncover new ways of achieving their lending goals. Offering ideas and solutions for growing their lending business, moving faster in order to level up their borrower experience. Collaborating to discover the unique-to-them ways the LenderClose platform takes care of the heavy lifting to allow for an increase in lending efficiency and allows them to focus on growing their business.
What credentials/past experience prepared you for working in your position?
In leading sales teams over the course of my career, I understand the importance and reward, for both an organization and its clients, comes from a strong partnership and relationship with clients. At LenderClose that’s no different. We work alongside our clients to establish long-term trust and strive to be an asset to them to accomplish their goals.

What hobbies, volunteering or passion projects do you do outside of work?
I enjoy spending my free time with anything sports-related, biking, traveling and renovating my house. I recently added Mack, a Doberman puppy, to the family and am working on being able to say he’s a “good boy” and mean it. He even has his own Instagram @mack.the.dobie.
