Jenna Nash-McCabe is a mother, wife, and mortgage specialist living in Kamloops, BC.
In 2009, she graduated with a Bachelor of Business Administration from Thompson Rivers University and then went on to run her own social media marketing business. After a decade of running her own marketing business, Jenna made a career change:
“I’ve always been very interested in real estate and figuring out ways to assist friends and family to get into the housing market. An amazing opportunity presented itself when I was assisting my sister and brother-in-law with their home purchase journey. I couldn’t pass it up! After looking into the education requirements and career opportunities, I jumped on it and took the course through UBC Sauder School of Business.
I love that I get to assist clients with their home financing needs and build long-lasting relationships with them. My work is very interesting and diverse. Plus I get to support people with options when they’re making one of the biggest financial decisions of their lives! One of the biggest challenges recently has been not being able to get out in the community and visit people face-to-face.”
During this time of social distancing, Jenna makes use of various forms of media to keep up with her clients, such as video chat and voice calls. She has been able to adhere to COVID-19 regulations while still taking care of mortgage needs:
“When COVID happened our office made the transition to working from home and I have been able to use technology to continue to run my business seamlessly. I’ve been able to meet clients on video chat calls or voice calls, send and receive documents electronically and make use of DocuSign to get all the necessary documents signed. While I miss seeing clients in person I’m glad I’m still able to serve them and maintain the current COVID regulations to stay healthy and safe.”
Jenna enjoys networking and connecting with her church, neighbourhood and community. She loves the act of volunteering and is looking forward to helping out in her eldest daughter’s school this coming year. She is currently building a Women In Business networking group as she understands the importance of connecting with and supporting other small businesses:
“I recently started a local Women in Business networking group here in Kamloops. We started out with a zoom call to get to know everyone and allow everyone an opportunity to share a little bit about their business. During these interesting times, I think it’s important to have an opportunity to connect with other like-minded individuals and support one another. It’s always so great learning about other products and services that are being offered right here in our own backyard. And it’s a great way to build some amazing relationships!”
Jenna’s life mantra is ‘I am grateful for all that is unfolding in my life and all that is yet to come’:
“Every time I reflect on events or situations that have happened in my life I am always reminded that they happened for a reason to get me to where I am in life today. And while sometimes I didn’t like what was happening, it is always for the greater good.”
