Ankeny Branch Manager
What year did you begin your career at Two Rivers Bank & Trust?
Can you please explain your current role?
My role is to ensure that our customers have the best experience and that our employees feel valued. I make sure that my employees are well taken care of so that they can meet and exceed their personal goals with Two Rivers Bank & Trust. I coach and mentor them to be their best each and every day.
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 an AA of Business Administration. I am finishing my Bachelors in Business Management and a minor in Human Resources.
Please highlight your community involvement.
My wife and I volunteer at the Animal Rescue League. I am a part of the Ankeny Chamber of Commerce.
What do you enjoy most about your role at Two Rivers Bank & Trust?
I am most excited about helping grow deposits in Ankeny. I have a number of contacts in the Ankeny area and plan to use that to my advantage to help the branch grow. I am very excited to be a part of the Two Rivers Bank & Trust team!
What does being a good neighbor mean to you?
Being a good neighbor means showing compassion and becoming a friend that everyone needs. It’s about having a selfless concern and showing that you care and want to help the customer succeed.
