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 bachelor’s degree from the University of La Verne with a concentration in Finance and Business Administration, while I am also at the cusp of earning my MBA from the Drucker School. My career includes over 16 years in banking with 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 both the mature and growth phases of the business cycle.

To help create a more sustainable future for the companies and communities I serves, I volunteer with several not-for-profit organizations focused on ending hunger and homelessness, and environmental awareness. When I am not volunteering, I enjoy outdoor activities, including but not limited to golf, snowboarding, and pickleball. I serve as a community ambassador for FCB, active in our Latino Network, and currently reside in Los Angeles.

I invite you to connect with me on LinkedIn.
