As I embark on my journey with Midwest Loan Services (MLS), I am filled with excitement and a deep sense of purpose. Coming from very modest beginnings, with parents who worked full-time as a teacher and an insurance agent to afford our home, I learned to value the American dream of home ownership from an early age. This background allowed me to appreciate the significance of exceptional loan servicing in making homeownership a reality for countless individuals and families.

When I joined MLS as the President & CEO in January 2023, I knew I was stepping into a role that would challenge me to lead with integrity, vision, and compassion. With over two decades of experience in the industry, I had witnessed firsthand the transformative power of exceptional loan servicing and the positive impact it could have on the lives of borrowers and the success of our clients. Now, as I rise in responsibilities to lead this esteemed mortgage servicer, I am determined to expand on the legacy of customer service excellence that MLS is known for.

What sets MLS apart is our unwavering commitment to innovation and continuous improvement. We are constantly exploring new technologies, processes, and strategies to enhance our services and stay ahead of the curve in an ever-evolving industry. This spirit of innovation is deeply ingrained in our culture, and it drives us to push boundaries and find creative solutions to the challenges our clients face.

One of the most exciting developments since I joined MLS has been our expansion from our headquarters in Hancock, Michigan, to a new office in Jacksonville, Florida. This strategic move allows us to tap into the rich talent pool of mortgage servicing professionals in the Jacksonville area, while also positioning us closer to many of our clients in the southeastern United States. By expanding our footprint, we are better equipped to serve our clients with the local expertise and personalized attention they deserve. This expansion not only enhances our operational capabilities but also reinforces our commitment to assembling the best talent in the industry.

At the heart of our success lies our exceptional team, the true embodiment of what defines MLS. Our people are the driving force behind our achievements, and their passion, expertise, and dedication are unparalleled. I am incredibly proud to work alongside such talented and compassionate professionals who share our vision of making a positive impact in the lives of our clients and their borrowers.

As a leader, I am committed to fostering a culture of excellence, collaboration, and continuous learning at MLS. We invest heavily in the growth and development of our team, providing them with the tools, resources, and support they need to excel in their roles and reach their full potential. By empowering our people to be their best, we create a ripple effect of positive change that extends far beyond our organization.

Looking to the future, I am excited about the opportunities that lie ahead for MLS. As we continue to grow and evolve, we remain steadfast in our commitment to our core values of integrity, innovation, and exceptional service. We will continue to invest in cutting-edge technologies, streamline our processes, and expand our services to meet the changing needs of our clients and their borrowers.

But more than anything, we will continue to put our clients and their borrowers at the center of everything we do. We will listen to their needs, anticipate their challenges, and work tirelessly to deliver solutions that exceed their expectations. This is the MLS way, and it is what defines us as an organization.

So, what does MLS mean to me? It means being part of a team that is passionate about making a difference in the lives of others. It means embracing innovation and continuous improvement as a way of life. It means fostering a culture of excellence, collaboration, and compassion. And above all, it means never losing sight of the fact that behind every loan, there is a person, a family, and a dream.

I am incredibly proud to lead this remarkable organization and to work alongside such dedicated professionals. Together, we will continue to make a positive impact in the lives of our clients and their borrowers, one loan at a time.

As we continue to grow and make a difference in the lives of our clients and their borrowers, I personally invite you to join us on this incredible journey.
