Wanda has been a Certified Divorce Lending Professional (CDLP) since 2014 when the designation was first offered. She has over 19 years experience in the mortgage industry.

Wanda got into the world of lending to help people better understand and get the right loan for their situation. She loves working with her clients. Each person has their own unique situation so it is a different scenario everyday. She feels that a mortgage is a great financial tool and can be used to achieve a family's short or long term financial goals. That includes people going through a divorce. There can be an immediate need for a purchase or buy-out, but also the longer-term plans that need to be considered before a separation or decree are finalized.

Centennial, CO

We, the Co-Owners of Children's Wellness Center of Colorado, PLLC, have a vision of serving those who have been hurt by various forms of abuse and trauma. We see intervention with children as making the biggest impact toward disrupting patterns of abuse that lead to chronic pain and suffering. We know that parents/caregivers have the greatest influence over the lives of the children in their care and not only do they deserve to heal too, but their healing impacts the child's healing. Our hope for every child, teen, parent, young adult, and family that we serve at Children's Wellness Center of Colorado, PLLC, is that they will become who they were meant to be when relieved of pain caused by trauma.
