Commercial Banker

The people at Bell are above and beyond the best in the business! We treat each other – and our customers – like family, solving issues with urgency and passion. Success is shared and rewarded constantly. At Bell, we are all strong as individuals, but put us together as a team and our strength is truly unstoppable!

In my role, I form relationships with companies looking for a full-service bank and banker. When you work with me, my goal is to partner with internal departments to make sure you have whatever you need to help ensure your company thrives. My goal is to be your “one call” destination for your business and personal finances, as my Bell associates in other departments are always ready to assist!

The best part of my job is engaging with business owners to learn how we can help grow your business and strengthen your successes through Bell’s banking opportunities and services. Meeting clients and hearing their stories is always intriguing, as they are never the same. Seeing customers’ ambition and drive is one of the best perks to the job!

Originally from Gilbert, Ariz. (a second generation Valley native), I earned a bachelor’s degree in business marketing from the University of Phoenix and a paralegal studies certificate from Phoenix College.

Starting my banking career in 1999, I have been fortunate to work in various aspects of banking – from working on the teller line and opening new accounts to mortgage underwriting. Working as a commercial loan processor for nearly a decade, I discovered my love for commercial banking and lending.

My husband, John, and I live in Phoenix with our Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, Puzzle (who has full control of us and the house). One of our many goals in life is to explore as many cities near and far as possible. We love to travel – either as a couple or with friends and family. Locally, we enjoy exploring the Valley’s local food scene and local theatre companies. Personally, I adore cars and try to go to as many car shows and auctions as possible! I have owned countless vehicles over the years and plan to own many more in the future!
