Most of my work involves helping financial services providers, including housing finance lenders, comply with state and federal regulations, which is particularly rewarding as they look to enter new markets and develop new products and services. I enjoy working with a client’s new and changing business objectives – and helping them grow their business, product offerings, and footprint.
