FIRST BIG BREAK:

I was attending college, working two part-time retail jobs and would ask the branch manager every time I went to the bank if they were hiring. Finally, I was told yes! I applied, got an interview and the rest is history.

ATTRACTION TO CAREER:

My father would have me sit down and write our checks for bills and balance his checkbook when I was young. I feel that this started my destiny of becoming a banker.

BEST PART OF YOUR DAY:

Professionally, getting a customer’s loan approved and clear to close! Personally, getting home at the end of a busy day to spend time with my husband and dog-child.

PROUDEST ACCOMPLISHMENT:

My marriage. I am so lucky to have found someone who is not only the love of my life but also my best friend.

FAVORITE PART OF YOUR JOB:

I absolutely, without a doubt, love being able to help people become homeowners. Attending closings and seeing the excitement on their faces makes my world!
