Miriam is a notary who serves the Los Angeles County area.
“I was introduced to loan signing agent/notary work by a friend,” says Miriam. “I became commissioned just before the pandemic hit in January 2020. By June 2020 I decided to go full-time. I’ve been going strong the last 3 ½ years.”
Prior to becoming a notary, Miriam worked for 25 years as a social services worker.
“I’ve been in the service industry a long time. Becoming a notary was a seamless transition for me. I love providing a service that helps make people’s lives easier.”
Sometimes providing that service means going above and beyond the call of duty. That has led to many memorable occasions for Miriam, including an “enroute to the airport” signing.
“The signing had been scheduled but then something happened in the signer’s life and they had to head out of town on very short notice. To complete the signing on time I literally had to meet them alongside the road as they were heading to the airport for an EARLY MORNING flight. It was nerve-wracking to say the least. I didn’t want them to miss their flight AND I had to make sure the documents were correctly executed. Everything got done and the signing closed successfully.”
Acting professional throughout the notary process is an aspect of her job that Miriam feels is very important.
“As the notary we are often the only live person the signers will meet throughout the process. Therefore, we must always remember that the way we conduct ourselves not only reflects on our business but also the agency that hires us.”
