coffee talk

: k l a t e e f cof A sit-down chat with SHELLY QUINN, Branch Manager of Silverton Mortgage in Huntersville

Our first cup

Irish coffee, please

“Originally from Rochester, New York, I lived in San Antonio and Atlanta before relocating in 1999 to Lake Norman. I began my career as a Mortgage Loan Originator. For the past 10 years, I’ve been a branch manager and am a certified Construction-Permanent Specialist, assisting home buyers, builders, and realtors with financing new construction, renovations, and teardowns. I have always been known for my strong commitment to customer satisfaction and my knowledge about the various mortgage products available in today’s market.”

“When it comes to travel, one place comes to mind … Ireland, Ireland, Ireland! I have been twice now and love it there. The beauty and the friendliness and the music and the pubs … it is so relaxing and fun. With travel somewhat on hold, we will enjoy seeing the “I enjoy the simple things … states instead of the world for now … this summer we flowers, my golden retriever, plan to visit Florida, Folly Beach, and Nantucket.” someone else’s smile, the blue sky, bright sun, and a full moon.”

When you need extra cream and sugar

“Well, life is certainly interesting these days. Social distancing is the total opposite of how I normally function. I love to socialize with friends, neighbors, coworkers, clients, and especially family. This is hard for me and I know it is hard for many … just the new normal they say, but it feels anything but normal. Although, we are truly blessed and I remind myself of that daily. My husband, Sean, and I have been married for over 36 years and we have two amazing kids. Our son and daughter (Brian, 33, and Colleen, 32) have moved back to Charlotte, and Brian had his first child in June making us first-time grandparents. Brian opened Town Brewing Company in Uptown and he is the head brewer there. Colleen moved here from Portland, Oregon, to be general manager of the East Coast for Craft Brewers Alliance.”

License to chill

“My job is not a 9-5—more like 24/7 so I have to juggle things carefully – sometimes just turning off the electronics is the best way to stay focused on the moment and to be fully present. I enjoy the simple things … flowers, my golden retriever, someone else’s smile, the blue sky, bright sun, and a full moon. I love floating in the pool on a hot summer day, enjoying a good glass of wine, and relishing in the love of my family!

My kitchen is my coffee shop

“With all the time at home lately, we have been trying some new recipes and turning to old favorites as well. I am also in two book clubs and we have been zoom meeting for our discussions. Like most, I have organized and cleaned everything in the house, and of course there’s the binge-watching of Netflix. We have started a social distance neighborhood circle that meets with our own chairs and coolers, and we have some wild games of charades!”
