Katie, Relationship Manager

“I love learning about how someone is able to transform their passion into a business. Most of the business we work with have owners who have poured their heart and soul into the work and many of the times, our loans are able to help keep their dreams alive, or keep their dreams growing. Small businesses are an important part of economy - we need them to be successful! Coming from a family that owned a small business and even obtained an SBA loan many years ago, I have the struggles these businesses may be going through first hand. Being able to help them really brings me joy.”
