About Alina

I joined the mortgage industry in 1999 because I loved the homeownership process. Once I learned about the benefits of reverse mortgages, I was hooked! I chose to specialize in reverse mortgages in 2007 to provide clients safe access to housing wealth in retirement. I have a deep respect for the wisdom and experiences of our elders and enjoy the high-touch process of working with older homeowners, their families, and trusted advisors. My greatest satisfaction is the knowledge I've helped move a client closer to their financial goals, secure homeownership, and a comfortable retirement.

As a Certified Reverse Mortgage Professional, I’ve penned articles for several industry publications, including Reverse Mortgage Magazine and the National Reverse Mortgage Lenders Association. I’m a continuing education instructor for the Financial Planning Association and the Institute for Divorce Financial Analysts. Through my writing and teaching, I’m able to not only assist my clients but also help more people learn how to use home equity wisely in holistic retirement income planning.

I’m blessed to have two lovely daughters, two perfect dogs, and two finicky cats. We enjoy boating, watersports, and fostering dogs for a local rescue.
