I am the Can Do Mobile Notary, which means I am available to serve your notarial needs.  I cover Lake County, but I also occasionally cover parts of Napa, Mendocino and Sonoma Counties.  During the fall and winter, I am available Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. for Lake County.  During the summer and spring, my service hours are from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m.  My hours are generally shorter for Napa, Sonoma, and Mendocino County, and my hours on weekends are flexible.

The Can Do Mobile Notary is READY for your notarial assignment, which means I am:

Your notary!

For general notary work, please make sure your document is completely filled out prior to my arrival.  I cannot give any advice on how to fill out your documents.  My scope of work is to verify your identity, witness you signing the document, and to notarize your signature.  

If a document has no notarial wording, or if the wording is not California compliant, I can only explain to you the difference between an acknowledgement and a jurat and direct you to choose which form you would like. I cannot choose for you.  Both of these forms are explained below.  

Acknowledgement:  An acknowledgement is used to verify your identity and to confirm that you signed the document.  You are not swearing to the truthfulness or validity of the document, you are simply acknowledging that you signed the document.  

Jurat: A jurat is used when you must swear to the content of the document.  I must administer  an oath or affirmation to you in order to complete the jurat and the notarization.

Certified Loan Signing Agent

As a Certified Signing Agent, I am available to title and signing companies to verbally summarize loan documents by giving brief descriptions of each document and showing them where all relevant loan information is so they are well informed by the end the closing.  I also verify signers’ identities, witness their signatures, notarize all documents in the loan package, and ensure that the process is complete for a proper loan closing.

I am Fidelity approved and carry $100,000 in errors and omissions insurance. I am also commissioned and bonded pursuant to California notary law.  I was first certified via the Notary Learning Center and Notary2Pro, and this last year took the Loan Signing System. All three programs have taught me the importance of attention to details and understanding documents in loan packages.  

Of Utmost Importance

California notary law does not allow me to give advice regarding what documents need to be notarized, how to fill out documents, or what the documents mean in your particular situation.  I also cannot suggest what type of documents you might need or provide documents to you.   If you need any advice regarding your document, please speak to whomever directed you to have your signature notarized or seek the assistance of an attorney. 

Please make sure you have a valid drivers license or identification card issued within the last five years.  If you do not have either, please let me know up front so that we can arrange credible witnesses who can swear, under oath, to your identity. These witnesses must comply with California identification requirements and have no interest in the document you will be signing.  

Finally, I must be able to communicate with the signer at all times. This means that no interpreters may ever be involved in the notarization process.  If you need a notary who speaks a foreign language, you can download a list from the California Secretary of State or search one of the big three databases:

Notary Café
Notary Rotary         

For those with hearing disabilities, we can communicate via the written word, or you must locate a notary who is able to communicate via sign language.
