I am a hardworking, enthusiastic, and dedicated professional in the mortgage industry implementing the next generation support for all of my referral partners, with the ultimate goal of favorably enhancing the customer experience. These qualities have propelled me to become a top producer at Movement Mortgage in Rhode Island (licensed in RI & MA). I work to establish, build and nurture long lasting relationships with real estate professionals across RI & MA. My 7 years of experience started as a processor for a team of 14 loan officers, processing 2,000 plus loans before being promoted to a Realtor Advocate. After achieving my goals as a RA, I quickly was promoted to my current position as a Retail Loan Officer.

I'm proud to say that I now work for Tess Leighton, who is my Market Leader. I'm also blessed to have Michela Champagne by my side, as my loan officer assistant, to help make sure my customers have the best experience possible. I enjoy sharing my experiences and guidance on the Round Table Radio Show – Real Estate Simplified 920AM and iHeartRadio once a month beside one of my biggest supports, Emilio DiSpirito from the DiSpirito Team.

I grew up in Exeter, Rhode Island before attending the University of Rhode Island, where I graduated with a Bachelors of Science in Business Administration. I am blessed to have 4 wonderful sisters and a big loving/supportive family surrounding me. I love participating in various charity events throughout the state, please ask me to participate! I am the proud home owner of a multi-family in Providence and I'm looking to purchase another one very soon! I love to volunteer my time teaching a First Time Home Buyer courses for the Professional Development Committee at the Greater Providence Board of Realtors and the Northern RI Board of Realtors. The New England Patriots are my favorite sports team followed very closely with the Boston Celtics, Red Sox, and Bruins. Golf, water sports, beach, and vacations are also hobbies of mine that I enjoy while I'm not in the office. I'm always a phone call away, please let me know how I can help you today, 401.266.4416.
