Marie is an integral part to Guardian’s loan processing team. Her excellent organizational skills and follow-through ensure that each loan has the documentation necessary to fund.

Marie grew up in Montana and received her BA in Journalism at Colorado State University. Before Guardian, she worked in public relations for 15 years, first at a non-profit in Denver then at two agencies in Seattle, where many of her clients were in the real estate sector.

Today, Marie lives in the Alameda neighborhood of Portland with her husband and two children. When she’s not helping loans get funded at Guardian, she is producing her children’s school play in partnership with Northwest Children’s Theater. You can also find her hiking, attending soccer games and walking Pepper, a Havanese rescue dog, to Guilder Coffee Shop.
