Happy New Year!

I have some bittersweet news. After four great years at DC Habitat as the Director of Housing Programs & Community Advocacy, I have come to the attention of the Affordable Housing Initiatives Department at Fannie Mae.
So, as of January 23rd, I will become a Product Development Manager there, where I will continue the work in affordable housing. I will be developing new initiatives focused on providing better access to credit for disenfranchised populations across the country.

I’m pretty excited at this new opportunity to expand my career. I’m going to miss working with such great people and for such a great organization but I look forward to this new endeavor where I get to work with Fannie Mae partners and have a larger impact on affordable housing in our country.

My last day at DC Habitat will be January 19th. It was a tremendous pleasure working with you. Thank you for your friendship, your professionalism, and your support.

Please keep in touch: <a href=””></a> or through my <a href=””>LinkedIn profile</a>.

For outreach, sales, condo approvals, and applicant approvals, please continue working with <a href=””></a>, Housing Programs Associate;

For closing process and lending, please continue working with <a href=””></a>, Mortgage Lending & Servicing Manager;

For Home Repair Programs, please continue working with <a href=””></a>, Home Repair Program Manager, and <a href=””></a>, President & CEO; and,

For advocacy and community relations, please continue working with <a href=””></a>, President & CEO.
