Why do you enjoy working at BankCherokee?
I really enjoy building relationships with our customers.

What is your favorite activity outside of work?
I love camping and being outdoors. There is nothing better than spending time out on the boat with the sun shining bright. We own a camper that my family and I like to get away to as much as possible. If I am not at work or at home, you will find me at our campsite.
Do you have any pets?
Yes, a cat named Paisley and two dogs named Tucker and Lexie. I love coming home to all of them sitting at the top of the stairs, excited to see their mom has come home. They get so excited. It makes my heart melt.
