What year did you begin your career at Two Rivers Bank & Trust?
Can you please explain your current role?

Leading up to your current job, what other experience do you have related to the banking industry? In what year did you begin your banking career?
I began my banking career when I was only 16. I started as a part time teller at a small community bank. I worked there throughout high school. I then started college in another town and decided I still wanted to work in banking while I attended school. I started there as a part time teller and slowly worked my way up within the bank. I have done it all and now being a manager is very rewarding because when I hire a part time or full time teller I can relate to them. I can show them that hard work pays off and one day they could be a branch manager!
Where did you grow up?
Do you have any special certificates / awards or designations?
I have my undergrad in Business Management, as well as my Masters Degree in Organizational Leadership.
Please highlight your community involvement.
I am a part of the Grand View Young Alumni Council.
