RIMBA has a new initiative for 2019: RIMBA’s Rising Stars. Each month, we will feature one of our members’ employees who has been deemed to be an “up-and-comer” in the mortgage industry. Members can submit candidate bios to info@rimba.org.

Equity National Title

Ashley got her paralegal degree from the University of Rhode Island. She is a Notary in RI and MA as well as a Rhode Island Continuing Education Instructor. Ashley is outgoing, determined, patient and ambitious, which makes her a perfect fit as our Business Development Coordinator.

Ashley finds herself on the road a lot meeting new clients and maintaining strong relationships with our existing ones. As part of her role at Equity, she coordinates our community service efforts when we do things like volunteer at local soup kitchens, raise money for classrooms, walk elementary school kids to and from school, host ice cream socials at local nursing homes and put together care packages for soldiers.
