Where did you work before Oxford Bank? Doing what? I worked for Fifth Third Bank for 15 years as a Branch and District Manager. 

What was Oxford Bank like when you first joined? What has changed? Pretty much every job had a manual process - especially how the Tellers processed their customer’s transactions. It's easier to list what hasn’t changed. All changes were made in a positive direction. As a small community bank we can offer everything larger banks have to offer, and I would say even more. 

What has been your proudest moment at work? Being able to help customers financially when they think there’s no help for them. Especially when the customer is a first time home buyer and you tell them their mortgage is approved!

What does working at Oxford Bank mean to you? Where I can come to work every day and do what I do best. Whether I am assisting co-workers, customers or calling on prospects. Working for a company where I can improve my skills, gain experience and be considered a valued employee.

What is something about yourself most people wouldn't know? I foster rescue animals and have adopted 3 dogs, that I had no intention of doing. So I guess you could say I have a big heart.

Tell us a little bit about your life outside of work: I love being outside, whether it's sitting on my deck, swimming in my pool, or working in my flower gardens; that's where you will find me when I'm not at work in the summer. I dislike the cold and mid-winter . . . wonder why I live in Michigan!
