“What keeps me excited about banking all these years is helping people,” Jennifer says. “The opportunity to be part of a locally owned bank was a pull I couldn’t resist and, it honestly feels like coming home.”

“My specialty is matching customers to solutions to fit their needs,” Jennifer said, “I really like supporting local families with local resources.”
