California Notary Mentor

Ms. Scherrer has been a mentor to many Notary Public students. You will receive instructions and answers to many of the questions and details that may come up once you begin your profession as a Notary Public.

To establish a mentorship you must phone or Email Ms. Scherrer to make arrangements. Sometimes the meeting will be in a coffee shop or at her office. The Notary Public mentor process usually takes a few hours. As a former student, you have the privilege to phone her for answers to questions at any time.

Having been a Notary for many years, there is additional Mentoring available as you grow into the more advanced aspects of performing signings. Ms. Scherrer does not provide certification for Signing Agents but will provide mentoring for that process once completed.
