Jennifer Burrage accomplished several significant milestones in 2018. She was elected to a three-year term on the board of directors of Mortgage Professionals Canada, where she serves as director for Atlantic Canada. Burrage also organized the first Women in the Mortgage Industry Awards of Excellence in 2018, which she co-hosted with WIMI founder Hali Noble.

In addition, Burrage has been on the board of CMBA Atlantic for the past four years and is a founding member of Brokering Wishes and founder of Divas and Diamonds, both of which raise funds for Make-A-Wish. “Being a part of wonderful things happening in our industry allows me to meet and work with great people,” she says. “It also keeps me top of mind with my broker clients when I am supporting and participating in their initiatives.”

This year, Burrage is looking to grow MPC’s membership and forge stronger connections and communication between MPC and brokers and industry partners. She is also pursuing her MBA in financial services at Dalhousie University.
