“I love Greensboro! It’s a great place to live, work and play. I feel privileged to work with so many talented leaders who invest in their people, their business and our community!
I serve on the board of First Bank, ABCO Automation, GMA/First Point, Greensboro’s Society of Financial Service Professionals, Greensboro Chamber of Commerce, and Boundless Impact. I am also the Chair of the Triad Women Presidents’ Organization and I’ve been president of Crescent Rotary Club — twice! I’ve also been active at the district level.”
