Lois Healy

Lois has over 10 years of counseling experience. She has served on 12 non-profit boards including two non-profit housing agencies. Lois worked for 3 banks in the area before becoming a counselor as a CRA loan officer and knows the ins and outs of affordable mortgages which makes first time home buyer counseling and foreclosure prevention and loss mitigation an easy task for Lois to help client’s with. Lois certifications include  NCHEC in Homeownership and Foreclosure and Default Counseling, Financial Capabilities Counseling and Coaching as well as a  Military Housing Specialist Certification, Senior, Homeless Prevention and Rental Assistance Counseling. Lois grew up in a family of eight children and as a young child was in a wheelchair from ages 5-12 due to Rheumatic Fever this helped her understand the struggles that people with disabilities experience first hand. As an adult Lois became divorced at age 28 and  was a single mother for all of her adult life, so she understands the economic struggles that most families experience. It is because of those struggles that help her in striving to build more affordable, assessible housing and understand that how important it is to teach and coach families and individuals about financial capabilities and how to maintain a budget/spending plan.
