Mini Bio:

I started my banking career as a junior in High School, working part time pulling files for a local Savings and Loan in Seattle.  Once I graduated High School the bank hired me full time as a “Girl Friday” (yes that was my title).    I spent the next 3 years working in every department to learn all the different job duties to fill in where needed.  I finally landed myself in the Retail side, which made me find my passion in customer service.  At 23, I was promoted to Assistant Manager, and at 25 I became the Branch Manager.  As  Branch Manager, I was able to build strong business and personal relationships with our customers, which lead me in the direction to be a caring advisor and business banker for our community. 

In 1992, I moved from Seattle to Marysville  to work for a local Saving Bank. This is where I became involved  with the nonprofit organizations in Marysville.  I have been a proud Rotarian for over 10 years, a community Board Member of the Cancer Patient  Assistance Fund, at Providence Regional Cancer Partnership, Past Board Member of the YMCA, and multiple other organizations. 

Interesting Facts about me:

I have been one the announcers of the Grand Parade for the Marysville Strawberry Festival for 10 years, and have been a member/volunteer for them over 25 years.

I love to travel, and have been to Europe twice, visiting 8 different countries. 

I joined a military Drill Team when I was 8 and stayed active in it till I was 16.  The drill team taught me the importance of team work and being a strong leader, giving back and to help whenever needed.  I also met my best friend from the drill team, and we are still best friends today.
