What do you do at BankCherokee?
I am part of the BankCherokee Commercial Lending Team.
Why do you enjoy working at BankCherokee?
BankCherokee is a family-owned bank with deep roots in the community. Like BankCherokee, I have been a part of this vibrant community of thriving businesses, beautiful parks and connected neighbors for decades. As someone who was born and raised in the Twin Cities, that commitment is what inspired me to join the team. I wanted to be a part of a neighborhood business that supports entrepreneurs and other businesses in my neighborhood.
My specialty at BankCherokee is…Developing lasting relationships and helping business owners of all sizes and industries find financial solutions tailored to fit their needs whether it be commercial real estate and construction/development loans, equipment financing or an operating line of credit.
Do you have any pets? I have a dog, Vinnie. He’s a lively 3 year old German Shepard who enjoys walks, playing Frisbee, and swimming!
What is your favorite activity outside of work?
Outside of work, I spend time enjoying all four seasons here in Minnesota—skiing, golfing, biking, walking with my German Shepherd, Vinnie, and cheering for all the local sports teams. I am an avid reader and a volunteer mentor to a bright young man who I’ve known for eight years now through a local nonprofit, Bolder Options. It has been very rewarding to be a part of his life and his family, and to watch him thrive.
The last good book I read was? I’m always reading a new book! A couple of my favorites are A Road Less Traveled, The Tao of Pooh, and anything by Harvey MacKay
