Melissa began her career in reverse mortgages nearly twenty years ago when she answered a newspaper ad for a company looking for a Reverse Mortgage Marketing Director.  Over the next two decades she was provided with the opportunity to market reverse mortgages on a national level, develop affinity business relationships with several large financial planning firms and banking associations along with developing and providing training tools for those new to reverse.  Prior to joining FAR, she spent the last several years of her reverse career as a wholesale account executive.  Melissa was then offered the opportunity to put her twenty years of reverse knowledge to the ultimate test by joining the stellar Wholesale Sales Support team at Finance of America Reverse.         

Melissa currently resides in the great state of Texas with her husband, daughter, and five rescues including two dogs (Cassiopeia and Daisy Cella Evangeline) and three cats (Henna, Rosie and Sugar).  She is a voracious reader, loves a great board game and has been known to spontaneously break out in song or play a tune or two on piano.
