The mentorship that these ladies and more have given me has shaped my career into what it is today. Without people like these, where would I be, more importantly, where would you be?
My introduction to the Arizona State Escrow Association began in the summer of 2009 when a young lady asked me to raise my hand and become a Director for the 2009-2010 fiscal year. That was just the beginning…
Since then, I have been actively involved in many committees, in ASEA along with the American Escrow Association where I have held many offices including AEA Director, 3rd Vice President, 1st Vice President, President-Elect, and President. This year the member states voted me in as the AEA Treasurer, of which, I am happy and grateful to have a voice!
