Personal Trust Team Leader
Hometown: Aberdeen, SD
Education: University of South Dakota
When I came to the Bank in 2004, I knew that I wanted to work for a locally owned organization with long-time connections to the Sioux Falls community. Now, I’ve spent nearly 20 years building relationships with our customers and helping them reach their financial goals!
My education includes a bachelor’s in business administration and an MBA from USD, and I also hold a Certified Trust and Fiduciary Advisor designation.
Although I was born in Aberdeen, my family moved to Sioux Falls when I was teenager — so I consider this to be my true hometown.
I love the opportunities for community involvement here, and I volunteer my time by serving on the board of the Mary Chilton DAR Foundation, participating in the annual Avera Race Against Cancer, and helping out at Feeding South Dakota and KindnessFirst events.
My husband, Mark, and I have been married for more than 30 years; we have two adult children, Sarah and Jacob, and one puppy named Aspen!
When we aren’t cheering on the Minnesota Twins (we try to go to at least one game a year), you can find me bargain hunting or in my kitchen trying out new recipes.
