I have been married for nearly twenty years and have three amazing children! I have also been managing people in different roles for about the same time period. I started my professional career in the luxury hotel industry quite frankly by accident. About six or seven years later I stepped into the mortgage origination business and found my skills of leading people and excellent customer service were just as much of a commodity.

Over the last five years, I have worked for a couple of different companies due to the ever changing landscape of mortgage and credit. I lost my recent VP role with a major bank in late December. Since then, I have been up and down emotionally more than the Empire State Buildings elevators!

I am on a mission to find my passion and earn a living to support my family at the same time - not an easy task, however it certainly is achievable!

Thank you for reading and I wish you all success and happiness in your lives!

Unemployed to Self Employed
I have met many individuals who became "self-employed" while they were actually on a stint of being "unemployed." How and why does that happen? I believe if we gave every child an option of working for a company or working for themselves and they were guaranteed success, I believe the…
