Adriana

Marketing Coordinator

Born and raised Austinite who has spent equal amounts of my 20s traveling and living outside the US. I stumbled into the mortgage industry because my aunt has been an Austin realtor for many many years and introduced me to Cornerstone! I love the fast pace nature of the business, connecting with people and learning something new daily. I refer to myself as an empath through and through and carry that into my professional life as well as my personal and believe that it allows me to build strong relationships with others.

Outside of work I spend my time as a videographer shooting weddings, short videos for companies and creating vegan content to spread awareness for the animals and the environment. My passion and commitment to helping others are what fuel me and I can't wait to continue to help people along their journey!

Processor

I'm a native Cajun who moved to Texas in 1987. I started the mortgage business as an underwriting assistant, then closer, and finally processing. This is my 25th year in mortgage and I chose processing simply because I love to work with people. I am a natural born people pleaser, and pride myself in customer service. I want our customers to feel safe and comfortable…my personal goal is to be a "friend", someone trustworthy, while they are going through something they don't do every day. That's my goal. My hobby is my love for cooking. I have a deep Cajun background with a grandma that ran a popular Cajun restaurant for 30 years. I get joy from watching others enjoy my creations. I'm also known as the "social director" at our office. I manage all the birthdays for our staff, and bake each and every cake to order, per their request. It's so fun to make someone's day!
