A Little Bit About B.A.
As a mortgage advisor, it has always been important that all consumers are informed about the complex world of mortgages, which I began in 2004. In my career, I have been a broker, banker, and correspondent lender, which is an amalgam of the first two. In 2008, I branded Help Me B.A. to keep a consistent message in a very tumultuous industry. The highlight of my mortgage career was being a Top Producer for Fulton Bank. I also became a Certified Mortgage Planning Specialist to bridge the gap between what I did, and the important work of Certified Financial Planners. The idea being I was the manager of a client’s largest debt, and the CFP was the manager of their assets. We needed to be in sync to uphold our fiduciary responsibilities.
Before entering the mortgage business, I was The Director of Basketball operations, for Penn State University. My many responsibilities included scheduling, overseeing the student managers, alumni relations, and game film coordinator. It was an opportunity for me to reinvest in my Alma Mater and team where I was a Captain my junior and senior year.
My career as an on-air talent only recently ended, where I was a color commentator for ESPN Regional. This was another fun opportunity to be involved in College Sports without all of the blood, sweat, and tears. What lead to the on-air opportunity, was my years-long work with The Penn State Basketball and Football Shows.
Out of graduate school, I was fortunate enough to secure a Marketing Account Executive for Advantage International (now Octagon Sports & Entertainment Agency). My role was to create regional marketing opportunities for our NBA and Olympic athletes.
My degree is a B.S. in Finance from Penn State University. I’ve been a member of The Coaches vs. Cancer Committee for over 20 years, and also a current Board Member of The Centre Volunteers in Medicine, and The Team Ream Foundation.
