Why did you become an NTP?

It was important for me, as I think it is for everyone in the industry, to have that designation. The more professionals we can exhibit the better to build our industry’s credibility.

Why should others get their NTPs?

Everyone in this industry should strive to show that level of professionalism. Receiving an NTP provides exposure of the amount of skill and experience that we have, both as individuals and as an industry.

How have you used the NTP designation to advance your career or promote your business?

The NTP designation is a symbol of being trustworthy to our peers, our customers and anyone dealing with our industry. I use it regularly to promote the integrity of my company and my industry.

How did you get into the industry?

I walked into a bar one night after a softball game and saw a person I knew who worked at SafeCo Title. She told me about job openings for title examiner trainees. I applied, got the job—and 34 years later—I can’t get out.

What excites you about what you do or what is the most challenging aspect of your job?

I’m excited by the fact that every day our company helps promote business for our agents and for ourselves. We do the right thing in the market place and have pride in what we’ve become. The most challenging part of my job is trying to help people understand the title industry and what it is we do.

Why is the title industry a great career opportunity for those entering the workforce?

I think for young people, there are a lot of different opportunities that exist in our industry that people may not think of when they think about our business: from title research to the escrow settlement process, several legal aspects, to sales and marketing to managing and a whole host of other things.

What is your best professional trait?

I work very hard, and I like to think that I am open-minded to things that are effectively changing our industry.
