About Me

I am a Zanesville native with over ten years of experience in residential real estate. While earning my degree from Ohio University in Business Communication I worked full-time as an escrow officer for a local title company. I developed a love and passion for the real estate industry and continued my career after graduation in retail banking. I joined The Community Bank in 2012 and was promoted to Senior Mortgage Loan Specialist in 2015.

As a Mortgage Loan Specialist, I am very passionate about working with new clients, building relationships with realtors, and counseling individuals with their financing needs. I have advised customers and coached them through all of these processes and I have the experience you need. I will show you your options and make sure the financing fits your goals. I am invested in your future and want to show you how The Community Bank can be your partner.

Outside of the office, I am involved with Muskingum County Community Foundation Council, enjoy volunteering throughout our community, I am an avid Ohio State fan, have a passion for photography, and enjoy traveling and spending time with my husband and two children.

About Me

Growing up and living in Zanesville, Ohio, I have been a proud employee of The Community Bank since 2010 where I have worked as an assistant manager, consumer lender and now a mortgage loan specialist. Prior to joining The Community Bank, I graduated from Muskingum University with a bachelor's degree in Business. I have worked in the personal finance industry since 2005.

I enjoy educating and informing my clients on the wide variety of different options that best fit their needs. I value communication, hard work and dedication and promise to make financing homes a smooth and enjoyable experience for my customers. I have built many successful business relationships with my customers over my years in banking and will continue to do so while working with you. Building a rapport and trust is very important as this is one of the biggest and most rewarding decisions you will make in your life.

In my spare time, I enjoy traveling, camping and spending time with my family. I also stay involved in the community. I love working for a company that has the same passion as I do for helping out our community.

About Me

I am a lifelong resident of Cambridge. After graduating from Ohio University, I made the decision to stay and work in the area where I went on to raise my two children, and now enjoy my granddaughter. Having enjoyed many opportunities for employment in the Cambridge area has given me a chance to develop many relationships in our community. After 17 years as a finance and office manager with a local Cambridge auto dealership, I made the transition into banking in 2010. Moving into the banking business has allowed me to continue my desire for excellent customer service. I put my customers first and guide them through the mortgage process. I truly enjoy mortgage lending, as it allows me to continue to assist customers in making their home dreams come true.

In my free time, I am a member of the Cambridge Kiwanis, volunteer with the Cambridge Citizens Police Alumni to support our local law enforcement, spending time with family, and golfing.
