I am a UC Berkeley and Cal State East Bay graduate. I hold a Master of Public Administration; emphasis in Public Management, and Bachelor of Arts in Ethnic Studies and Education.  In my professional tenure, I have owned a Paralegal / Court Interpreting business and employed in Real Estate Finance.  I stepped away from my paralegal career because litigation didn’t always produce happy outcomes.  I found that Real Estate Finance always had happy endings, i.e. happy home owners with new homes and happy refinance clients.  Hence, I enjoy Real Estate Finance so much more.

I have worked in Real Estate Finance since 2003.  I am a fluent Spanish-speaking mortgage advisor. In my real estate career, I have been a mortgage advisor, senior processor, junior underwriter, and loan manager.  I know the life of a loan from beginning to end, in depth.  I can structure, dissect and put a loan back together with ease. I have been able to structure and close loans that other investors have declined.  I enjoy challenging loan scenarios and being able to find solutions when others cannot.

I have three children – Paolo, Clarisse and Niccolò, and an Australian Shepard/ Border Collie dog named Zsa Zsa. My husband, Art Morales, Jr. is a Union Local #378 Ironworker and Retired Welterweight Professional Boxer. Together, we love to hike, camp, swim in rivers and lakes, take road trips, and do anything that connects us with nature! I cannot sit still. I find myself gardening during the evenings or working on DIY home projects. I’m often involved in my community, I enjoy volunteer work, community service projects, & actively participating on commissions and boards. I’m a social/ environmental/ economic justice warrior.  If there is a march in the area, I will be there.  

I love seeing the pride and satisfaction of my borrowers when they purchase their first home. It brings me tremendous joy to be part of their enormous accomplishment!
