I am the Can Do Mobile Notary and Certified Signing Agent, which means I will do my best to serve your notarial needs. I cover Lake, Napa, Mendocino, and Sonoma counties.

As a Certified Signing Agent, I am available to title and signing companies to verbally summarize loan documents with borrowers, witness their signatures, notarize documents, and ensure that a signing is complete for the loan to close properly.
I am Fidelity approved and carry $100,000 in errors and omissions insurance. I am also licensed and bonded pursuant to California notary law. I am READY for any notarial assignment, which means I am:
I worked as paralegal for 17 years. Four of those years were in workers compensation and 13 years in construction defect. Because of my work in construction defect, I have extensive knowledge of legal documents, especially deeds, purchase documents, notices of completion, and other types of construction and homeowner documents. I know the importance of maintaining the integrity of legal documents and ensuring they are handled with great care.
Please note that I cannot give legal advice regarding what documents need to be notarized, how to fill out documents, or the “why” and “how” of your document content. I can only show where information can be found in your documents, verify your identity, witness your signing, and notarize your signature. If a document has no notarial working, I can only explain to you the difference between an acknowledgement and jurat and direct you to choose your form. Both of these forms are explained below.
Acknowledgement: An acknowledgement is used to verify the identity of the signer and to confirm that they signed the document. They are not swearing to the truthfulness or validity of the document, they are simply acknowledging that they signed the document.
Jurat: A jurat is used when the signer is swearing to the content of the document. The notary must administer an oath or affirmation to the signer in order to complete the jurat.
