What is your favorite part of working at VeriFacts?

I learn something new every day! While that may seem a little cliche, it is certainly true. With the pace of applicable industry and regulatory changes, we are always evolving to make sure we are meeting our clients’ needs. We have to be forward thinking and our team is certainly that!

In the receivables industry, what emerging trend has your attention?

It’s the subject of most conversations- Reg F! Like everyone else, our team has been busy preparing. We’ve been developing affordable products like our best residential address (Res Select) and Email Trace to keep Reg F requirements as simple as possible for our customers. As CCO, compliance is my passion. We aim to deliver the most relevant products and services that help our clients with compliance as well.

What industry change do you predict over the next 5 years?

This has also been a part of many conversations, but ​​I am hopeful that regulations will catch up to today’s modern world. Technology is changing and growing faster than ever and we need to be able to do the same. It’s hard to believe that the shift toward digital has taken so long.

How do you define success?

To me, success is being fulfilled, happy, safe, healthy and loved.

What is the best piece of advice you have ever received in life?

The best advice I have been given is to live in the moment.

What advice would you give someone entering the receivables management industry?

Don’t let the negative outsider portrayal of this industry sway you, I have met some of the most amazing, kind, and generous people in my life here! Our industry is often villainized, but remember that this industry is full of real people who care and are committed to doing the right thing.

What are you most proud of?

Professionally, my proudest accomplishment to date is my Bachelor’s Degree. It’s in Elementary Education and even though I am not currently a teacher, no one can take it away from me. Personally, I am most proud to be a mom to two amazing boys.

What is your favorite podcast?

I enjoy anything thriller or murder related. Through conversations at conferences and events, I’ve found that there are many others who share this interest. With that said, if it’s football season, I’m not tuned in to anything but NFL Radio!

If you could do any other non-industry job for just one day, what would it be?

I pursued my Education Degree because I am passionate about children, so if I were to have another job for a day, it would be as a Children’s Advocate. It’s such a big job, but it has a positive, sustained impact that lasts a lifetime.

People would be surprised if they knew…

I am obsessed with NFL Football and while I will watch any game and love all the teams, my favorite is the New Orleans Saints (even though Drew Brees retired on me). During the entire football season, the only channel I listen to in my car is Sirius XM NFL Radio!
