I have held many jobs throughout my life. I started while still in high school in the business world; from there into the automotive manufacturing world; then into the world of finance with both automotive and the mortgage industries. The mortgage industry, as it turns out, was simply a sign of things to come—I have been working with older adults ever since, including now my role as a reverse mortgage specialist. I most enjoy the “deep and abiding” friendships that develop out of my work with older adult clients. It’s like having a whole host of grandparents, each with their own fascinating story. The instant gratification I feel, at the closing table, knowing that I have helped them financially; keeping the lights on, being able to afford their medications or even taking the vacation they have dreamed of their entire life is so rewarding. I am very passionate about helping others and becoming a caregiver will let me "give back". Something my grandmother and mother have instilled in me since I was a little one. I enjoy being around the elderly and most importantly befriending them. The stories they tell, the experiences they have encountered in life are all fascinating to me. Having watched my grandmother become a lost and lonely soul after the passing of my grandfather, I vowed I would do whatever I could to help make an elder remain comfortable and happy with life as they continue to age gracefully. I am a very caring, sincere, trustworthy individual with a great personality and a heart full of love.
