MEET NATALIE DAVENPORT
Natalie’s priorities can be summed up in one word: family. It brought her to Colorado from the west coast (she moved to be closer to her daughter’s family and granddaughter) and brought her to TMC as she was drawn by the family-feel and shared family values of the company.
No stranger to the mortgage industry, Natalie brings over 30 years’ experience to her role as a Compliance Specialist. From selling homes, loan processing and auditing, to home retention, Natalie’s work history brings a big-picture understanding to the entire loan process.
WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT NATALIE
Inspired by her mother, Natalie strives to take great pride in her work while putting family first. Her mother rose above the challenges of being a single parent with a 100-mile commute to work to raise Natalie and her sister to have a strong work ethic and moral compass, and a desire to pass the same onto the next generations.
Natalie extends her love for family to working with the elderly, seeing it as a high honor and privilege to take care of those who are aging and struggling to keep their pride intact. She also loves the younger generations and from 2005 through 2016, she found a lot of joy in teaching horseback riding lessons to kids and teens, seeing their confidence grow through the love of horses. Working with children and the elderly has taught Natalie patience, compassion, and the ability to look through the eyes of others to see things from their perspective – something that serves her well at home and at work.
When she’s not keeping the mortgage industry in line, or loving on her granddaughter, you will find Natalie in her garden, immersed in other house projects, or fishing with her husband of 30 years. She even hopes to try Colorado ice-fishing soon!
HERE ARE A FEW MORE THINGS TO KNOW ABOUT NATALIE
Natalie loves traveling to nearby states in their fifth wheel with family and friends, visiting national parks and monuments along the way.
She recently had the unique opportunity to be the head cook for a hunting camp on the western slopes of Colorado. Cooking breakfast, lunch and dinner for cowboys, hunters, and students every day for a month while living in a primitive ranch-life setting is an experience she will always cherish.
Above all else, Natalie would tell you her greatest accomplishment will always be raising her two children and watching them start families of their own. Her hope for the future is to continue to grow professionally while making a difference in the community through volunteerism.
She lives by the words of her father, “Any job big or small, do it right or not at all” and finds herself repeating this phrase often even for the most menial tasks.
