“I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”
“My experience with Embrace began in 1990 when I was 8 months out of college. I started in Capital Markets managing our warehouse line as well as selling loans in the secondary market. Things were much smaller back then — the average loan size, the amount of our warehouse line, and the number of people we employed.
Over the years at Embrace, I traveled through Capital Markets, Processing, Underwriting, Closing and Technology. I have been fortunate to work on many projects that were impactful to me and the organization:
- Creating Embrace’s original mission statement
- Approval as an FHA Direct Endorsement lender
- Boarding Mason Dixon Funding
- And most recently, building out our Financial Institutions Group
Each of these projects were challenging and rewarding at the same time. My experiences allowed me to build relationships with a wide array of people both inside and outside Embrace and I am thankful for each of them.
Through all of my roles and projects at Embrace, I am struck by how each evokes a positive memory of someone who worked beside me and their impact on me. Wow — I feel so lucky to learn and grow from all of this.
My husband and I have three children; two of them are in college. Working for a company whose values align with yours makes raising a family and working full-time possible.
Each day I strive to be the positive light for those who work directly with me as well as those I work alongside. While work can be hard, doing it with a smile and a positive outlook makes the hard easier.”
