I am a State Appointed Notary Public and certified to perform Online Notarizations. Also, I am an NNA Certified Loan Signing Agent. I have a degree in Paralegal Studies from Florida State College at Jacksonville and am proud to serve the community with the highest credentials available for Florida State Appointed Notaries.

As a proud Native Floridian, I grew up in New Smyrna Beach with roots dating back more than 100 years. After spending much of my life out of the area, I am thrilled to be back, settled with my husband, Steve, and all my family!

My professional history includes management with many well-known retailers but my passion for videography and a great partner motivated me to create my own business, PNK Video Productions. PNK was honored to work closely with the Jacksonville Chamber of Commerce, Jacksonville chapter of SCORE and, be recognized by the Jacksonville Bridges Small Business Initiative.


Understanding Notarization

• Acknowledgments: Ensures the signer is who they say they, understands content of the document and has voluntarily signed the document.

• Jurats: The signer swears before the notary that the contents of the document are true.

• Oaths/Affirmations: A verbal exchange between Notary and Signer indicating the information contained in the document is true.

• Copy Certifications: Allows the original document to be reproduced.

• Signature Witnessing: The verification of identity and completion of signing a document (similar to acknowledgement but different wording).
