M R EP O RT | 39 What Others Are Saying "Miriam Moore encapsulates the spirit of the Laurie A. Maggiano Legacy Award, having spent over 30 years serving the mortgage industry, shattering glass ceilings to become one of its most well-respected leaders today. Over the past year, Moore and her team facilitated thousands of loan modifications (250K+) by providing title reports and generating loan modification documents. These efforts helped provide peace of mind for struggling borrowers previously at risk of losing their homes. Moore also prioritizes giving back. She co- founded a networking/mentoring group for women working in financial services nearly 15 years ago; it is still going strong today." What This Nomination Means to Her "I'm honored to be nominated for The Laurie A. Maggiano Legacy Award. Laurie was an industry trailblazer, a respected leader, and someone who strived to make a positive impact in people's lives. As a leader, I believe it is important to support and mentor the next generation of leaders. This recognition by Women in Housing is truly an honor and will further enable me to set an example for others in our business to live up to Laurie's legacy." What Others Are Saying "With more than 20 years of experience in the mortgage, real estate, and fintech industry, Dawn is constantly seeking automated solutions to lending problems, pushing the boundaries of her responsibilities within Tavant. She is also an active thought leader in the fintech community. Her influence and passion for empowering others are widely felt across the organization. She is dedicated to leading the way in operational and technology efficiency and effectiveness. Additionally, her ability to quickly adapt to ever-changing industry trends and navigate new challenges continues to be an asset to both her team and company. Dawn is at the forefront of Tavant advancements, spearheading critical initiatives in the sales of Tavant's products and services." What This Nomination Means to Her "This nomination is meaningful because I am passionate about believing that homeownership is the best path to financial security and wealth. Our work in our industry contributes to making the dream of homeownership a reality. She cares deeply about mentoring women and new entrants into our industry. The support and focus on women's leadership becomes ever more relevant as we move through challenging market cycles. Women are still far outnumbered in housing, so we must work toward greater inclusivity." What Others Are Saying "Sandra Thompson was officially sworn in as the official Director of the Federal Housing Finance Agency, regulators of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, in June 2022. She is an inspiration to many women in the real estate industry. Formerly, she was a Director for FDIC. She encourages women as a leaders to focus and move up the ladder in our industry." (Editor's note: See our cover interview with Director Thompson in the April 2022 edition of our sister publication, DS News magazine.) What This Nomination Means to Her "Since becoming head of the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) in 2021, we've taken steps to promote sustainable and equitable access to mortgage credit. We have an opportunity to make a real impact on people's lives by increasing homeownership among historically underserved communities, and we're working to make every day count. To be recognized for this effort so early on in my tenure as FHFA Director is not just an honor, but further incentive to continue promoting sustainable, equitable access to mortgage credit—in a manner that does not compromise safety and soundness."
