She has been responsible for the analysis of alleged breaches involving large numbers of individual mortgages on topics such as pre-foreclosure loss mitigation strategies, foreclosure standards, short sale processing, and REO disposition. She is also experienced in the review and analysis of discovery materials and has performed research regarding industry foreclosure standards and institutional financial ratings.
