VP/Commercial Banker

In my role at Bell, I work with commercial clients, and I specialize in helping those who have complex treasury needs. I love meeting new people and businesses, learning about what they need from their bank (and from me as their banker), and then executing that for them. If clients don’t have to worry about their banking, they can focus on growing their business.

Originally from Tacoma, Wash., I’ve worked my way up in finance – starting as a part-time teller at an Arizona credit union and eventually running its second largest branch! Since 2006, I’ve served as a bank branch manager, operations manager for back-end processing, treasury sales, and most recently as a business banker at Parkway Bank prior to joining Bell in 2020.

Because I have worked in branches, operations and treasury, and have a deep understanding of the Bank Security Act and compliance requirements, I can confidently offer banking services that help my clients become more efficient in their daily banking processes. I’m also AAP-certified, which means I can help clients who process ACHs (such as payroll, taxes or HOA payments) remain compliant, understand electronic processes, and become more efficient and cost-effective when paying their employees or vendors.

I’ve been recognized as an Arizona community activist and trailblazer and was named to the list of Most Influential Women in Arizona in 2017 by Arizona Business magazine.

My husband, Brad, and I live in Phoenix. Outside of work, I’m a foodie who loves to cook (I have trophies for my chili!), as well as try out new restaurant. I’ve loved cars since I was a child, and I attend car shows regularly. I also help many charities in my free time – including Junior Achievement of Arizona, Suns Charities 88, TGen, Barrow Beyond, the American Cancer Society, Make-A-Wish Arizona, the American Heart Association and Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Arizona.
