Ari brings more than five years experience in the financial industry to her role as a mortgage banker with Resource Financial. She has been a Relationship Manager for Bank of America and a Quality Assurance Supervisor for the US Census.
Born in Kingston, Jamaica and raised in mainland Japan and Okinawa, Japan, Ari grew up in a military family. Those experiences taught her well and broadened her worldview. She is bilingual and speaks Japanese as well as English. She is also flexible, tech-savvy, disciplined and has a strong sense of service. “I adapt to my surroundings quickly and understand the challenges of facing something new.”
Ari knows firsthand the stress of moving to a new home. She uses her skills and understanding to help customers navigate the move with assurance and ease. “I believe it’s important to place myself in my customer’s shoes and be mindful that buying a home is not something they do on a daily basis. I pride myself on being patient and understanding.”
When she’s not helping her customers finance their dream homes, you’ll find Ari on the rugby field, where she gets a kick out of playing with the Columbia Bombshells. She also enjoys power lifting and aspires to run a marathon one day. Road trips and traveling are her other loves, especially with Hayden, her eight-year old daughter.
