Bio: My career in banking began more than 20 years ago as a teller with a large financial institution in Indianapolis, IN.  In 1997 I decided to move back to my hometown of Gary, IN to further develop a career in financial services and have held positions ranging from Teller, Personal Banker, Loan Officer and Branch Manager to my current role as Community Reinvestment Act Officer.  Providing financial literacy and homeownership training to the residents of Lake County, IN as well as Chicago and South Suburban Cook County is my passion as shown in the various leadership roles currently held throughout those communities.
