Get to know me

As a First Citizens manager of business banking, 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 Greensboro and my masters from Syracuse University. My career includes over 25 years in banking with the majority of that time spent in the Business Banking space. My specific focus has been working with clients in the healthcare industry and operating companies in the growth phase of the business cycle.

My family and I enjoy living in Raleigh. When I'm not at work, I can be found at a soccer game or gymnastics meet with my two daughters.

I am passionate about understanding my clients' business and helping them achieve their financial goals. I'm proud to be a part of the First Citizens family where "Forever First" is more than just a slogan--it's a promise to stay with my customers through the years and even across the generations and remain worthy of the trust placed in me.

I invite you to connect with me on LinkedIn.
