My start in the banking industry basically began in the womb, as some of my co-workers and family like to joke about. My mom worked for the bank for 35 years before her passing, and she is the one who got my foot in the door, so to speak. I remember her bringing me in for the 'bring your kids to work’ days and I would look at everyone behind the teller line and think, 'I'm going to work here one day like my mommy!’
Now here I am with the same bank she worked at, and it has truly become a second family to me. I love my job because I’m a social butterfly who loves interacting and connecting with people. In my current role not only do I get to interact with a variety of customers through the ITMs, I get to interact with co-workers who can pass along stories of my mom while also getting to create my own bonds with them and new associates that join the company.
