Q&A with Nikki

Where is your favorite place to eat?
My favorite place to eat is Stepping Stone in the Northwest District, I will always get their biscuits and gravy with a banana smoothie.

What draws you to the lending industry?
What draws me to the lending industry is being able to empower homeownership, especially with younger people. I am also a Real Estate Broker in the state of Oregon so being able to see both sides (Lending and Real Estate) has further helped me educate my buyers about the home buying process.

Who is your hero and why?
My hero is Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Without her, I wouldn’t be where I am today.

What does your dream Saturday look like?
My dream Saturday would be waking up somewhere tropical where I can kick back and relax in the sunshine. Enjoy delicious food, drinks, company, and swim in the warm, sandy water.
