Garner’s inspiration led to the creation of a national training platform, which launched several new initiatives and departments to spearhead a centralized communication strategy. Guaranteed Rate employees are now provided with some of the best-in-class live training, coaching and on-demand resources. Garner even played a paramount role in helping Guaranteed Rate tackle inclusivity within the mortgage industry. Over the past year, Garner has served as the backbone for the expansion of Guaranteed Rate’s Organization of Women also known as GROW. GROW is a mentorship program that aims to help industry women increase their confidence and production volume. Integral to the launch, Garner was able to convey the importance of appealing to women as an analytically backed perspective. Garner and the women of GROW wish to ensure that women in the typically male-dominated mortgage industry feel empowered and that their voices are heard. Through Garner’s backing, GROW was able to launch its first conference, which featured 15 women who represent $1 billion in loan origination volume.
