How did you get into the reverse mortgage world?
With accounting and marketing degrees, I found a career to work with folks of my generation. Monte Howard (of blessed memory), a pioneer in reverse mortgages, mentored me when I made the move from traditional to reverse mortgages.
What current topics in the reverse mortgage world are you most focused on now?
Especially with the increase in home equity, showing folks the sequence of risk for their funds and wanting all their retirement assets working for them.
What do you consider to be your greatest accomplishment in your career to date?
Being one of less than 20 percent of folks to pass the CRMP test the first time.
What do you like to do in your spare time? Do you have any hobbies or pursuits?
Being an active volunteer at the San Diego Zoo and Safari Park and teaching life skills, like gardening and baking, to my 15-year-old granddaughter.
What do you love most about working in the reverse mortgage industry?
Providing folks between the ages of 55 to 105 an opportunity to remain in their home without a mortgage payment and improve or continue their lifestyle.
