#NEXTraordinary People: Cerita Battles

That tells you something, right there.  Because what 10-year old growing up in a beautiful, historic, seaside, Florida city, says her ultimate career goal is to be a banker?Olympic swimmer, maybe? Marine biologist, possibly? Lead singer in a band, or top vet at a zoo, or Mariah Carey, maybe? But banker? I don’t think so. (Or, let’s just say, it’s not likely. At 10, I mean. For me, personally, anyway.) But this, of course, is not your typical 10-year old. Not even close. Let me introduce you to Cerita J. Battles, of St. Augustine, Florida.

Lindblom is a detail person, an efficiency expert. One of those people who likes to let results speak for themselves. And in her case, boy, do they ever.

She is chief operating officer for Planet Home Lending, Meriden, Connecticut. And if she was put in charge of all mortgage lending on the planet, she could probably get that done. (Just kidding, but, maybe not?)

Lindblom’s resume reads like the yearbook of someone who has run operations for some of the biggest, most marquee names…
