What do you enjoy most about your role at Two Rivers Bank & Trust?
I enjoy building long term relationships with my clients. It’s very rewarding and a great feeling to watch my clients continue to grow their companies and become successful.

What does being a good neighbor mean to you?
It means that I am constantly looking after the best interest of my clients. Bringing them solutions and ideas that help them grow their business is essential. Every solution may not fit every client, therefore, building customized banking solutions for all clients is a must. Being a good neighbor means volunteering time, talent, and treasure to the community outside of work hours. I can only deliver this type of relationship through working for a true community bank – Two Rivers Bank & Trust.
