Gretchen Jackman is an individual who is passionate about empowering others and helping them reach their personal and professional goals. She began her journey and quickly realized the potential of this opportunity. She founded PROFormance Signings LLC, a national signing service, and is dedicated to bringing quality ongoing training to Ohio notaries. Gretchen is also actively involved in coaching and mentoring notaries whenever possible.
Originally from Pennsylvania, Gretchen has been living in Columbus, OH for almost 14 years. She has a background in tailoring and worked for Nordstrom, Men’s Wearhouse, and Dublin Cleaners before opening her own tailor shop in 2009. In 2018, she was looking for another business to open that would allow her to make more money without requiring a significant investment or a steep learning curve. That’s when she came across the idea of becoming a Notary Signing Agent and decided to pursue it.
Gretchen became a notary and worked part-time her first year, learning everything she could about the industry. When the COVID-19 pandemic hit in April 2020, she discovered that notarial services were considered essential, and her business took off. In two months, she doubled what she was making as a tailor, and by the end of the year, she had more business than she could handle. She opened her own signing service and has been a full-time working notary ever since.
Gretchen’s commitment to providing quality notarial services and her desire to become a notary trainer led her to Notary Academy. She is excited to connect with others who share her passion for this industry. Gretchen is determined to provide the best possible training and support to notaries in Ohio and beyond.
