VP/Treasury Management Team Lead

In my role as VP/treasury management team lead, I oversee our Twin Cities and Duluth, Minn., treasury management teams. The dedication and support our leadership team has shown me since I joined Bell Bank in 2016 is something I want to give back to my team. I enjoy helping my team serve our clients, encouraging them to grow as individuals and creating a rewarding work environment.

Bell fosters an environment of lasting relationships, which translates into how we connect with our clients. In my role, I focus on all things related to commercial deposits. My goal is to help clients be more efficient in their business operations through treasury management, antifraud measures and account maintenance support. A bank transition can be daunting, but we’re here to ensure the transition is as smooth as possible. We strive to understand what motivates a client to make a banking transition, and more often than not, it boils down to relationships and service.

During my career, I have seen the importance of building and maintaining trust with clients and colleagues. We saw firsthand the impact a banking relationship had on businesses during the Paycheck Protection Program process, and now more than ever clients are looking for a banking relationship that’s like an extension of their team – not transactional.

Originally from the Twin Cities, I earned my bachelor’s degree from the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities. After graduating, I landed my first job in banking as a commercial loan coordinator at a smaller Twin Cities community bank, assisting commercial bankers with loan closings. Away from the office, I enjoy spending my time with family and friends.
