Get to know me

As a First Citizens business 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 UNC Wilmington with a concentration in Finance. My career includes over 17 years in banking with the majority of that time spent in the Business Banking space at First Citizens Bank. My specific focus has been working with clients in the Operating and Professional sector. I have significant experience working with businesses in all stages from growth to maturity.

I am passionate about spending my spare time with my family and friends, traveling to the beach, and exploring new places and taking on new challenges.

I invite you to connect with me on LinkedIn.
