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 bachelor's degree from Lander University with a concentration in Accounting. My career includes over 20 years in banking with the majority of that time spent in the Business and Commercial Banking space. My specific focus has been working with clients of all sizes in the business and commercial space that are in growth phases of the business cycle.

My spouse, Lauren, and I have been married for 17 years. We are the proud parents of two children. One girl in middle school and one boy in elementary school, who are both very active in sports and outdoor activities in the low country.

I am passionate about spending my spare time volunteering for youth athletics in our community, working with my local Rotary Club with volunteer activities including "Backpack Buddies and Happy Feet" which provide for underserved youth in our area. I am also very involved with our local Charleston Metro Chamber where we, as leaders, work to improve many items affecting our community.

I invite you to connect with me on LinkedIn.
