You could say title insurance runs in Tina’s blood, having several title examiners and underwriters in her family before she joined the industry 27 years ago. While title examination can be a challenging career, her knowledge growth, ability and confidence in her work has allowed her to become very well respected in the industry.  According to Tina, title examining is like being in the FBI; being inquisitive,  solving puzzles, and having an interest in the law are essential for a successful career. Using her skills and interest in traveling to different courthouses and using new technology to solve title mysteries has been very rewarding to her.
