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 Bachelors degree from Babes-Bolyai University in Transylvania with a concentration in Sociology and Social Work. My career includes over 15 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 Commercial and Industrial space that are in the growth phase of the business cycle.

I grew up in Transylvania, Romania and moved to the U.S. approximately 20 years ago. I'm the proud mother of a wonderful son and amazing daughter who keep me busy. We are actively involved in our community of South Bay and we love making our home here.

I am passionate about understanding what motivates people to improve their lives and businesses. When I'm not in the office, I like to spend my time going on bicycle rides on the beach or making dinners to share with my friends. I love to serve the community and help the people of South Bay who are in need.

I invite you to connect with me on LinkedIn.
