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 of Arts in Political Science from Transylvania University in Lexington, Kentucky. I am an accomplished financial leader with over 29 years of experience in banking with the majority of that time spent in the Commercial, Not-for-Profit, Governmental and Educational space.

I am originally from Lexington, Kentucky where my family continues to reside and where I love to go home and visit. I lived in Cincinnati for over a decade before moving to Naples, Florida in 2004. I met my husband, Troy, in Naples and we have been married for 12 years.

I invite you to connect with me on LinkedIn.
