Tara first started as a Processor, and after quickly making a name for herself within the company as someone who is trustworthy and efficient, she became the Director of Processing in 2021. She is a double threat who is licensed for DPFI, and Loan Processor, bringing a strong work ethic and outstanding customer service.

When asked what she enjoys about working for Prospect the most, Tara likes the challenge of the ever-changing market, loan scenarios, guidelines, and the fast-paced environment. She mentioned that this industry always keeps her on her toes. Her motto is: It always seems impossible until it’s done! Work hard, and success will follow.
