“I went into banking right out of college, starting as a trainee before transitioning into a retail operations position. I immediately enjoyed the teamwork aspect of my job and found that being customer-focused and helping customers and their families meet their financial goals and objectives was very rewarding. I was incredibly fortunate to have a mentor who was a branch manager early in my career. He was able to help me stay focused yet be creative.
I was allowed the freedom to contribute in a wide assortment of ways to help our team succeed, which helped me learn all the different aspects of banking and transition into new positions easily. Now, after nearly 30 years in banking I still find helping customers rewarding. And even better, I get to pay it forward, passing on what I know and mentoring a new generation of bankers.”
