About me professionally

I have been a Notary Public for 30 years. My background is rooted in customer service and as an Administrative Assistant. When I first became a Notary Public I worked as a sales assistant in a stock brokerage firm then spent 20 years as a stay-at-home mom.  After raising my son, who currently serves in the USMC, I went back into the workplace first in real estate and then into Member Relations where performing notarial acts come across my desk regularly.

About me personally

I am a native Californian and have lived in Pauma Valley and then Escondido since I was 6 months old.  I  have one son who is married and three grandchildren.  My husband Tom, moved here many years ago courtesy of the USMC and has worked in his own flooring business for 35 years. I love to read, play tennis, and play the piano.
