As the Business Office Manager for a regional contractor, she helped successfully launch an entrepreneurial business with the creation and implementation of the initial finance system, marketing and advertisement.  She was later part of a team that solved the financial systems problem that had delayed the year-end closing for a well-established, architectural and engineering firm, including operating parallel computer programs for different aspects of the business.


Kathleen’s banking experience ranges from small-town savings to prime mortgage lending institutions.  She remains proud of her affiliation with Machias Savings Bank of Maine where she was professionally groomed.  While there, she worked both back and front of the house from loan servicing and file maintenance to front-line customer service.  She later worked in residential mortgages for Fleet Mortgage, handling a volume of accounts with varied loan program types and sizes.   She has experience in loan origination, processing, and desktop-underwriting.
