Born and raised in the working class city of Detroit, Michigan. So things were hard.
I was raised by a single mother who taught me early on that the key to success was having a hard work ethic. That work ethic directly translates over to success in the mortgage industry.
I started working food service jobs when I was 14 and learned early on the value of elite client service.
As a youth, I fell in love with music and skateboarding. Those two communities were diverse, supportive, and got me through some tough times.
Since I barely graduated high school, I thought I would pursue another one of my passions - cooking.
Flunked out of culinary school and worked hard in bars for a few years until I moved back to Michigan.
I got a degree in English education. Much like educators, mortgage professionals help individuals overcome obstacles.
Unfortunately, teaching didn’t pay well and I had a few friends that worked in the mortgage industry down at Quicken Loans.
I started at UWM in May of 2016 as an Account Executive. Rode that for a year, but teaching was in my blood.
I built a Sales Coaching Team here at UWM and eventually was selected as one of the individuals to build Success Track.
In 2021, Mat had a vision to create a team to help mortgage professionals all across the country grow. One of the main things I’ve picked up from Mat, is the idea of Servant Leadership. I embrace that as a leader of the Partner Services Team.
Work ethic, attitude, and the idea of reaching the top together is a mindset I embrace every day.
The mortgage industry is 100,000 percent mindset based.
If you wake up positive, you will make an impact, those impacts are little victories, those little victories add up to championships.
