Get to know me

Hello, I've been with the Community Association Banking (CAB) division since 2003. I've had the privilage of working with many talented individuals at CAB. In addition I've met and worked with hundreds of Industry Professionals along the way. None of this happens without the Management Companies, the countless volunteer Board & Committee members, and the home/unit owners . This Industry is our only focus, and we take great pride in delivering a best in class experince. Before joining this team, I worked as a Portfolio Condominium Manager in the Boston area. Some would say I know just enough to be dangerous. I would say it provided me the background and experience to undertsand our clients need. When I'm not working, you'll find me enjoying a great cup of Italian Espresso with friends, riding my road bike, or just enjoying the sunrise at the beach.
