What path brought you to Shamrock Financial?
I had been doing various tasks in addition to mortgage origination when Shamrock contacted me. They opened my eyes to the types of social marketing and networking opportunities that I wanted to pursue. Also, there is a real team atmosphere here that I appreciate.

What do you have a knack for professionally?

I enjoy establishing relationships with clients during the financing process. Because each situation is unique, I give every one of my clients the personal attention they require.

How long have you been doing what you do?

I have spent over 20 years in the industry at this point. It never gets boring!

Tell us about a few of your favorite things.

I enjoy spending time with my husband and my two teenagers. As well, I love living in New England; the change of seasons allows me to go to the beach in the summers, take in the beautiful foliage in the fall, ski in the winter, and watching the plants awaken in the spring. And then there are the sports teams – the Patriots are my favorite.

Where did you grow up and are you still there?

I grew up in Norwood, MA and moved just a few towns over to Stoughton. It is diverse with a strong sense of community. I still have lifelong friends that live in Norwood and surrounding communities; I visit these towns as often as I can.

Are there any volunteer activities you are crazy about?

I volunteer for anything related to the schools, and my husband and I attend local fundraising events to support various causes. I am also a Town Meeting representative in my precinct.

What’s the one problem you are best at solving for our clients?

Because nobody is perfect when it comes to your credit score or the amount of your down payment, I like discussing options with clients and advising them regarding the direction of homeownership. There’s nothing better than letting someone know that buying a home is indeed possible.  

What would be impossible for you to give up?

My morning coffee.
