As a lifelong resident of the Sauk Valley area, my roots run deep in Sterling, my hometown. My educational journey began at Newman Central Catholic High School and continued at Sauk Valley Community College, where I graduated in 2020. In 2022, I proudly earned my bachelor’s degree in finance from Northern Illinois University. My upbringing in our local community has instilled in me the profound importance of fostering dependable relationships with a community bank.

I am an active member of the Keystone Group and hold the esteemed role of Sauk Valley Chamber of Commerce Ambassador. My passion for community involvement knows no bounds, as I am perpetually in search of opportunities to volunteer and give back.

In my role as a Commercial lender, my primary focus is to provide timely solutions and guidance to our local businesses and enterprising individuals. I am dedicated to aiding them in the realization of their financial aspirations. Through the highs and lows of their journey, I remain a steadfast presence, ever-ready to assist and educate our valued customers on the most suitable options to meet their unique business needs.
