Can you provide a brief bio of your past work experience?
I started my career in banking when I was 19 years old as a part time teller with Bank of America. I was with the company for 12 years and ended my career as a Business Banker for the Atlanta market. I joined Atlantic Capital Bank as a Commercial Banker in late 2018, and due to a divestiture was laid off at the beginning of 2019. After a short hiatus, I crossed paths with a C+C ad, and here I am!

I enjoy helping people manage projects and find solutions. I excel at creating long-term strategies that help customers become more proactive than reactive.
