I started my banking career as a teller while in college and have remained in the industry because I love to help people and their businesses grow.  With 28 years in financial services, I can confidently say the best bank I have worked for is North State.  It is a privilege to be a part of a company that helps our community every day.

Outside the Office

I love living in North Carolina, between the mountains and the beach it’s hard to choose which place I like best. I enjoy spending time with my family, walks with my dog, gardening, reading and being involved in our community.
