Partner, Mortgage Advisor
Myles spearheads all mortgage services for Seafirst Financial Services. He has a broad range of industry experience ranging from title and escrow to loan processing and origination. Before joining Seafirst Financial in 2008, he worked as a Senior Loan Officer and Sales Manager for a regional mortgage company. Throughout his career he has helped facilitate thousands of mortgage transactions. It’s this industry knowledge that helps Seafirst Financial promote a productive experience for our clients and avoid the pitfalls that can often accompany the mortgage process. Myles grew up in Burien, WA and went to Western Washington University. He currently lives in the small town of Edmonds along with his wife and young daughter.
As Production Manager, Robby helps move loan applications through the approval process, by gathering additional client information as requested by lenders. Prior to joining Seafirst, he worked in the banking industry for 8 years. This provided him the opportunity to learn multiple aspects of the complex financial industry, obtaining licenses in investments, life insurance, and also as a Notary Public. He is currently working towards making the mortgage industry his specialty. Robby has lived in the Seattle-area for 16 years. Like a true Pacific Northwest resident, he prefers the outdoors and spends much of his free time camping, hiking, and slacklining. You can also find him enjoying live music throughout the city.
Loan Originator, Wenatchee Branch
Melissa oversees our Wenatchee branch, helping our Eastern Washington clients navigate through the home loan process. Prior to joining Seafirst in 2015, she most recently was the morning show co-host for Wenatchee’s KW3. However, the majority of her career has been spent in sales management roles for the hospitality industry, at one time representing 19 hotels in 3 different states. Her experience in a fast-paced, customer service oriented role has made her an ideal match for the ever-changing loan industry and a great advocate for our clients. Melissa is a Wenatchee native, born and raised in the Wenatchee Valley. She loves being active and outdoors, and when she’s not in the office can usually be found biking, boating, hiking or skiing with her husband and two boys. A couple years ago she rode in the Seattle to Portland bike ride and even ran a full marathon, but has no desire to do that ever again.
Senior Loan Processor
As our Senior Loan Processor, Amy is tasked with orchestrating the many institutional processes involved with the approval, closing and funding of mortgage transactions. She coordinates with the Banks, Title, Escrow and others to make sure each party to the transaction is provided the information they need and in return performs the services requested of them. Amy jumped directly into the mortgage industry right out of High School and has over 20 years of experience closing mortgage loan applications. When not returning emails and shuffling papers, Amy enjoys her free time in the great outdoors with her husband and young son.
As a production assistant, Angela helps with the operational aspects of delivering products and services to our clients. With an extensive background in media and advertising, she also manages Seafirst’s marketing and client outreach efforts.

Prior to joining Seafirst Financial, Angela worked primarily in local television, coordinating large-scale marketing and community relations campaigns. In 2013, as a client of Seafirst Financial, she decided to dive headfirst into a new career and join our team. Angela currently lives in Snohomish with her husband, and two young children.
