Melissa is a former Accounting and Finance professional who joined Mid America Mortgage in 2015. Prior to converting her passion for serving others into a full-time career in Mortgage Lending, Melissa earned her MBA with a Finance concentration from the University of Houston-Clear Lake. As a Financial Controller, she managed the budgeting, accounting, and forecasting for large manufacturing facilities. Melissa is an entrepreneur at heart and has owned and sold two small businesses of her own. This breadth of experience has been a tremendous asset to the clients Melissa serves in the mortgage industry, since she is uniquely positioned to understand the challenges the self-employed borrower faces when obtaining financing for a home loan, and the demands of busy professionals and the additional stress that buying a home can create when you don't have the right team of experts guiding you. What I Like Most About the Mortgage Business: This business is perfect because it allows you to help people with the biggest financial decision they will ever make. This is a huge honor. The best compliment I can receive is a referral from past clients and the Realtors who trust me to serve their clients with excellence and care. The satisfaction of knowing my clients are thoroughly pleased with their experience in every way is the greatest reward. What Clients Are Saying: "Melissa, is an absolute professional with expansive knowledge and insight, of which, I had the opportunity to experience recently!
