I was born on November 23, year undetermined, in Heidleberg, Germany. When I was two we moved back to the United States. Unfortunately, I looked a bit like a boy and “boy” was listed on my passport. When I turned 18 I was drafted. Since I was able to prove that I am a girl I did not have to serve my country.
I got in the mortgage business in 1978 when my dad lost his job and I moved back home to Chicago. I applied for a job as an assistant loan closing officer. I didn’t know what that was but it sounded like a cool title. I typed 23 words per minute with 11 mistakes on my typing test, but was hired because “he liked my Southern accent.” The rest is history. I processed for 6 years, ran a small brokerage for 6 years and have been with MIG for 16+ years minus 4 months at Countrywide in late 1997 to April 15, 1998. I am assured a place in heaven as I am pretty sure I have already been to the other place.
I love working at Mortgage Investors Group. In the 3- 4 hours a week that I am not sleeping or working, I do take an art class. I am learning to draw and to paint and hope that one day when I am 80 and retire I will become a world famous artist and the next Erma Bombeck.
