Capital One


My road in life took a while to figure out.
Wanted to go into fashion design.
Realized I hated pins and drawing.
Went into early childhood education at a 2 year institute.
None of my credits transferred to my 4 year college.
Teaching job market crashed--changed my major.
Ended up doing something totally different--now I'm in banking! Prior to that I worked retail for 6 years!



I'm a teller & relationship banker at the same time! I get the best of both worlds!

Day to Day

If someone were to shadow me for a day, they would see a whole lot of running around! From balancing customers at the teller line to the platform for customer service issues. It's steadily busy here, Mondays and Fridays you need to have your 'running shoes on'.

Advice for Getting Started

Here's the first step for high school students

I enjoyed what I studied in college because doing my undergrad in something pretty open gave me a lot of room to think about what I would want to pursue in my grad school part of life. Whether it would be teaching, law, or an MBA, studying philosophy and religion gave me the room to think outside the box. However since I've been out of school for a bit, my honest opinion is to go where the money is. In today's world not a lot of people get jobs related to their majors! Medical and accounting all the way baby!
