Marilyn grew up in South Dakota, after receiving a degree in Early Childhood Education, she moved to New York soon thereafter as a Preschool teacher. After receiving a Paralegal degree, she worked at a real estate law firm for several years. Spending many years learning about and handling the mortgage process for several major banking institutions, which included fundings, closings, contract reviews and many other analytical aspects of the lending process, it was inevitable that she would secure a position as an mortgage underwriter given her talent to identify and resolve issues quickly. Shortly thereafter, she would be promoted again to underwriting and operations manager. Not only did she blossom into a seasoned professional, she thrived as a leader in space given her 20+ year track record analyzing and working on high net worth clients!
