36 | M R EP O RT An MReport Issue Featuring Five Star Conference's Awards Finalists What Others Are Saying "Shayna exemplifies leadership in all aspects. She embodies a culture of compliance, successfully exhibiting a culture of care where 'doing what is right' is paramount. Her leadership is one of partnership—blending the needs of the business, not only meeting but exceeding all regulatory requirements. Notably, Shayna is a champion for Diversity and Inclusion. Being the founder of the TMS Women's Leadership Forum, her influence here allows all women within the organization to have a voice and to have that voice heard. Her ability to direct and shape paths fuses effortlessly with her steadfast ability to guide and mentor others." What This Nomination Means to Her "I entered the C-suite at age 31. Given my age at the time, I tended to wear my professionalism like a shield. Over the years, I've been able to shed that shield as I've challenged myself to let who I am shine through and lead in a way that is unapologetically me. At 37, I've found that magic balance of being the same person at home that I am work, and I've found that it's been a welcome shift in the paradigm. Working through the pandemic with young children at home forced me to be vulnerable in my role as a team member, a leader, and an executive, but to still let my values of honesty, integrity, and positivity shine through. This nomination by my team and the team at the Five Star is a celebration of how far I've come in my role over the past six years and a testament to the value of being true to yourself." What Others Are Saying "Jennifer serves as a mentor within Caliber Home Loans' DREAM Alliance employee resource group, which stands for Developing, Recruiting, Empowering, Advocating for, and Mentoring women. Through this initiative, she has been able to participate in and speak at events that allow employees to ask questions of leadership regarding things such as career advancement. Jennifer is also currently serving as a mentor for company leaders where she can provide guidance on navigating the industry and career steps with one-on-one monthly engagement. She is advocating for more women in leadership positions within her company and the mortgage industry." What This Nomination Means to Her "This nomination—to me—is concrete evidence of the respect I strive for daily from my co-workers. That my peers and company would nominate me for being my authentic self is truly humbling. As a leader, I look to hold myself to the same standards as my team—I always ensure I have knowledge of the tasks each role I manage must complete. It takes a village to be successful, so this nomination is not just for me but for all those that have mentored me, work with me today, and will carry the mantle of success forward." Shayna Arrington Chief Compliance Officer The Money Source Jennifer Corcoran SVP of National Operations Caliber Home Loans, Inc. The Authentic Leader Award Nominees for this award should demonstrate exemplary leadership, serving as both a business leader and a role model for their colleagues, and earning the admiration and respect of their peers in the process.
