Real Estate Paralegal
I was responsible for gathering data for real estate transactions. This was during the upsurge in real estate sales and refinancing and our office maintained a fast pace with intense deadlines. I reviewed closing documents from the lender, collected data for the HUD-1 settlement form and ordered title insurance for the client.

High-energy, enthusiastic and dependable individual who excels in challenging and competitive environments. Excellent public speaking skills. Able to build relationships and work with others in achieving goals.
I have always loved meeting and talking with people, no matter when or where. I often start conversations with people when standing in line at the grocery store. You learn a lot about life and humanity by just listening to what others have to say in a casual, candid setting.
During quiet times, I love to work on puzzles. I'm patient and love the problem solving challenge.
I also love the great outdoors. I garden, raise orchids, hike, camp, fish and dabble in wildlife photography.
