Jean has been in Banking for more than 30 years. She began her career as a part-time teller and worked her way along to become a Head Teller, Customer Service Representative, Loan Processor and Assistant Branch Manager.  Subsequently, she became Vice President of Business Development for the Bank, focusing on both retail and commercial lending.  Coming up through the ranks, Jean has built a wealth of banking and lending expertise that allows her to help and advise her customers through the financing process.  Jean loves what she does and offers that her favorite part of any deal is the closing no matter what type of loan. She says, "That’s when all the hard work is done, and we can all celebrate an end of one process and the beginning of what will hopefully be a long relationship with our customer.”
