She’s passionate about getting to know clients on a personal level and working collectively to help achieve their business goals. As a Cape Codder, she understands the unique business climate we work in. And her past experience at both banking and non-banking institutions gives her a unique perspective.”

It is very inspiring and a privilege to be a small part of assisting businesses to grow and expand.”
