How long have you been at AFL:
What is your role:
Processing Team Lead
Before working here, what was an interesting job you had:
My previous career was in retail development. I would work with major retailers and designers to create new retail spaces. I was fortunate enough to travel the world and collaborate with some amazingly creative people.
What has been your favorite part of working here:
The people. Hands down the best team I have ever worked with and for.
If you could do any other job here what would it be:
Who knows, maybe one day I will test out the Loan Officer world. But right now, I love where I am and can’t imagine not being a part of the Processing Team.
What hobbies and interests do you have outside of work:
My 15-year-old daughter keeps me very busy. When I am not running her around, I like to hang out with friends, go to concerts (when that was a thing) and I am working on perfecting the Old Fashioned. Any tips?
What is your hidden talent:
Not so sure about hidden, but I can find the silver lining in any situation.
What is your favorite quote:
“Choice is the most powerful tool we have. Everything boils down to choice. We exist in a field of infinite possibilities. Every choice we make shuts an infinite number of doors and opens an infinite number of doors. At any point, we can change the direction of our lives by a simple choice. It is all in our hands, our hearts, and our minds.”
