In your own words, describe what your role is at the bank:
I am a lender in our commercial loan department. I assist businesses large and small with financing for real estate, equipment and daily operating costs.
How did you get into banking?
I was given the opportunity to intern at a community bank in the summer of 2014 and enjoyed it so much that I knew I wanted to be a career banker.
What does effective leadership look like to you?
Effective leaders have a clear goal and open communication with their teams. In pursuit of the goal, they identify strengths and foster the growth and development of the individuals on their team, leading to a more efficient and effective team dynamic.
Why is banking a great career?
I continually say that banking is a great career for anyone. I believe this to be true because with the many different departments and skill sets that are needed to make a bank function effectively, it's possible for nearly anyone to find a place that they're passionate about and thrive in.
