About Shannon

I was raised on the beautiful island of O’ahu and now reside in Mililani with my three children and husband. My goal is to always maintain the higest standards and strive for the best.

After obtaining my finance degree, I started my career in the finance industry as the Securities Specialist at Hawaiian Electric Company, Inc. I specialized in working with long-term securities such as tax-exempt revenue bonds and stocks. My career at HECO spanned 11 years. In 2003, I decided to join my husband’s expanding mortgage company and become a loan officer. This ended up being a wonderful career choice because of all the families I have been able to help.
