Topeka, KS 66603

Office: (785) 274-5845

With over two decades of experience in banking, I have dedicated my career to fostering growth and success in the financial industry. As the Commercial Lending Director at Capitol Federal®, I work closely with our Commercial Lending team to expand our loan portfolio across all our markets. I enjoy working closely with my team, as well as our clients, and believe that collective success is the key to achieving our goals. Whatever your goals are for your business, I’ll connect you to the lending experts here at CapFed® to accomplish those goals.

In addition to my role at Capitol Federal, I am actively involved in our local community. I serve on the Marketing and Finance Committees at Topeka High School and Washburn Rural High School, advising students who are passionate about Finance and Marketing. It's incredibly fulfilling to mentor young minds and help them navigate their career paths.

A few things to know about me outside of my work at CapFed:

  • My favorite activity is spending time with my family outdoors.
  • I enjoy hunting and fishing.
  • I served in the Kansas Army National Guard in an artillery unit.
  • My family provides farm fresh eggs, fresh flower arrangements, baked goods, produce and pumpkins to local consumers.
  • In retirement, I dream of exploring the United States with a metal detector.

I am committed to growing our clients’ businesses, along with Capitol Federal’s commercial loan portfolio. Your success is our success. Contact me today to learn more about how we can help you achieve your goals for your business.
