In your own words, describe what your role is at the bank:
I am an agricultural and commercial lender. I also maintain our credit analysis software.
How did you get into banking?
I was coloring dollar bills in a suitcase in kindergarten when we were asked what we would bring on vacation. I think that was the start of it.
What does effective leadership look like to you?
Having the guts to do what is right and having the people that work with you know that there is no other option.
Why is banking is a great career?
Everybody has a dream, and those dreams rarely don't have a part that deals with money. I really love helping people put together the pieces and help them achieve that dream.
Share your favorite book, podcast or quote. Why is it your favorite?
I really like to listen to Joe Rogan. He is controversial, and I don't always agree with his opinion, but what he talks about helps keep me sharp on both sides of the spectrum.
