Day to Day

As a Branch Manager I help my team to help customers with their financial needs. I meet many people and I help them with maintenance on accounts and introduce customers to our team. I spend time helping my team reach the branch's goals and we all work together. I conduct weekly and monthly meetings with my team. I love offering advice and guidance to all our customers and making them smile.

Skills & Qualities Beyond School

You have to have listening skills, you can offer the best solution to the customer just by listening and understanding the customer's needs. I am a great believer in Teamwork, with teamwork you can help and build each other and when the branch meets the goals and over exceeds the goals everyone wins because it was accomplished together.
