I am the third generation of bankers in my family. My career started when I was a sophomore in high school and has spanned over a period of 45 years. After college graduation, I was a bank examiner for the State of Kansas for 6 ½ years which provided an educational experience by having the opportunity to be exposed to different styles of banking. Prior to joining Community Bank, I had worked at a local bank and two banks in the Kansas City area. Anxious to return to Topeka, I was pleased to be offered a job with Community Bank—that was over 20 years ago!
My interests include spending time with family and friends, working on Sudoku puzzles and counted cross-stitch projects, and being involved in various church activities.As auditor and compliance officer, my role is to review the various functions of the bank to determine if proper internal controls are in effect and that the bank is compliant with the ever-changing regulations.
