In 2011 I decided to become a notary again, after nearly 30 years.
In the mid 80's, I used to work in an office for a consultant that needed his own documents notarized. I hadn't thought much about being a Notary Public since that time.
It seems banks don't provide this service as readily as they used to and have a limited scope of services they are able to perform. Sure, many banks have a notary public on staff, but they seem to be off the day I need them or out to lunch. In fact, when I had an application notarized at a bank, they filled in the wrong dates and I had to have it done over again! :)
In addition, several years ago, my mom was injured due to a nasty fall and in a rehab facility. We needed documents signed and notarized for her and one of the administrative staff said "no problem" and handed me a post it note with a lady's phone number scribbled on it.
She told me the lady was a mobile notary. I had never even considered a notary being mobile or the inconvenience it would cause if someone is unable to get up and go somewhere to have their documents signed until that very moment! What a great idea. Since that day, I've been able to assist many others with their needs for a mobile notary.
Thank you for reading my information and please contact me with any questions you may have.
