I was born and raised in Omaha, Nebraska. As a proud graduate of Central High School (“Go Eagles!”), I like to stay involved with the school and connected to former classmates. After high school, I took a slight detour south to Fort Worth, Texas, to attend Texas Christian University, where I earned my Bachelor’s Degree in Finance with a minor in Accounting and Finance. I am proud to be a Horned Frog, but Nebraska is where I call home.
I got my start at First National Bank in 1996 as an Intern in the Human Resources (HR) department. As I continued my career with the bank, I was given a variety of opportunites within the organization. My first challenge was to start the bank's Wealth Management Marketing and Events Group. From there, I transitioned to the Corporate Brand Marketing, Management and Executive Events team. While producing a video for HR, I came to realize my true passion was in recruiting and found the prospect of bringing in new employees and guiding existing employees thrilling. Additionally, I have collaborated with Strategic HR Business Partners and the Enterprise Lending Group. Today, my role includes leading the Talent Acquisition Team and HR Business Partnering for many of the support functions.
I must say that the best part of my role is managing a high functioning team and watching them succeed! I also enjoy all of the people that I have met and worked with along the way… The people certainly make First National Bank special.
Why Did You Choose FNB?
I started at First National Bank in 1996, as a College Intern. I was hoping for a challenging opportunity that aligned to my business major, and I fell in love with the people and culture of First National Bank. I am so proud to call it home!
During my senior year of high school, I placed 8th overall in state of Nebraska in golf. I wish there was more time to play these days.
I love spending time with my boys and husband. We are always up for a fun, new adventure!
