Tell us about your career path.

I started as a branch sales associate then went into the management role. After 16 years in the branch, I took the leap and joined the business banking world. 


Who inspires you? What motivates you?

My mother is my rock when times are good and bad! Diane Richert, a PNC regional manager, gave me this opportunity to work for such an incredible organization. Helping people and small business owners inspires me to work hard every day.


How do you balance work and life?

PNC has made maintaining a solid work-life balance among the company’s priorities. The PNC Grow Up Great early childhood education initiative, for example, provides an opportunity for me to be involved with something I like while not taking time away from my job.
