Get to know me

As a First Citizens commercial banker, it’s important to invest in understanding your business, strategies and key objectives. An established process and skilled team of specialists help me tailor solutions to fit you and your organization. Clients appreciate our trusted partnership in planning for long-term success.

I earned my Bachelors degree from Appalachian State University with a concentration in Psychology and Business. My career includes over 15 years in banking with the majority of that time spent in the Commercial Banking space. My specific focus has been working with clients in the Commercial and Industrial space that are in the growth phase of the business cycle.

My spouse, JJ and I reside in Greensboro, NC. We are the proud parents of Mac & Lily, our toddler twins who are nothing but action and trouble. Our family wouldn't be complete without our golden retriever, Boone.

I am passionate about spending my (limited) spare time making my community a better place to be. I am very passionate about Make A Wish, Family Service of the Piedmont, the Greensboro Science Center, and Cone Health's Women & Children's Center. Much of these efforts are focused around helping women and children live their best lives possible, and leaving this community better than when I found it.

I invite you to connect with me on LinkedIn and Facebook.
