Tell us about your professional role: Everyday I assist clients in order to determine banking and lending solutions tailored to meet their needs, goals and dreams!
What do you enjoy in your spare time? I am married to my best friend and we have adopted six dogs and one cat. We go on an adventure at every opportune moment, thirsting for interaction with new cultures and ideals. We love to try new foods and often take the road less taken. You can find us driving the Blue Ridge Parkway, hiking the Appalachian Trail or kayaking the James River dependent upon the season (with a dog or two in tow!).
Who or what inspires you? My late father is still my hero and even from beyond he inspires me to be the best human possible and to try a task with all my might. Reflecting upon his carefully chosen words offered to me at times of desperation and celebration, I carry him in my heart and strive each day to make him proud.
What's a fun fact about you? I never learned how to tie shoes!
Why did you join YPCV? I joined YPCV to meet other young professionals like myself in order to build a network and make a positive impact in my community.
