“Ultimately lending is about supporting companies as they pursue success. There’s not a day that goes by that I don’t get the opportunity to help a customer in some way.”


I’ve worked in banking for a decade and counting. I started my career as a relationship banker with BB&T (now Truist) and progressed as a commercial underwriter and portfolio manager with Truliant Federal Credit Union and Bank of America.

Outside the Office

I enjoy being active and the outdoors—playing golf, working out and participating in track events.

No one has ever become poor by giving.
