I grew up in, and still reside in, West Des Moines. I have a Bachelor’s of Science in Business Administration from Grand View College in Des Moines (now known as Grand View University). I have also completed many Risk Management Associates and American Bankers Association commercial lending courses and recently attended the Iowa Bankers Associations’ Agriculture Credit School at Iowa State University.
I have been with VisionBank since December 2011 and have been in the banking industry for 15+ years. I have held positions from consumer & mortgage underwriting & lending to commercial underwriting & lending. I have been a Commercial Banker since 2010; prior to this I held the title of Senior Commercial Underwriter.
My Position and Job Requirements
As a Commercial Banker at our Grimes office, I specialize in lending to small-to-medium-sized businesses. Specialties in commercial lending include: Commercial & Industrial loans, Commercial Real Estate loans, Multi-family loans, Agriculture, and SBA lending.
I am committed to achieving success for my bank and for my customers. The greatest fulfillment I get from my job is being a part of helping my customers achieve their successes. I have to quote VisionBanks’ Mission Statement because it is a mission that I really believe in: “We will operate a well-capitalized and profitable community-focused institution. Customers and banking professionals will choose us due to our exceptional customer service and an environment that values long-term relationships. The entire organization will have an enthusiastic 'Can Do' team attitude committed to achieving success and doing things the right way.”
