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 University of Florida, magna cum laude. My career includes over 25 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 Medical, Commercial and Industrial space that are in the growth phase of the business cycle.

My spouse Greg and I are busy parents, with twins headed off to college soon and one in grad school.

I am passionate about people, relationships and serving our community. I'm an active member of the Maritime Association, the Propeller Club, Charleston Women in International Trade and CREW. I serve on the Board of Palmetto Goodwill and am the President-Elect of the Historic Charleston Rotary Club. My husband and I are active members of our local church and enjoy supporting important local and international projects. I am grateful for these organizations and their hard work to continue to enhance this city that we love.

I invite you to connect with me on LinkedIn.
