Community Bank of Santa Maria/Vice President
 

In 1993 my husband and I moved from Hawaii to Santa Maria to start our family.  We chose Santa Maria for its weather and proximity to the beach, but soon fell in love with the small town feel and friendly residents.

Soon after moving, I began my banking career as a teller at Mid-State Bank in 1994.  Looking for an opportunity to grow, I applied and was hired for a position with Community Bank of Santa Maria in 2001, where I am currently employed.  Community Bank of Santa Maria is the essence of what a community bank should be; headquartered right here in Santa Maria, serving the community we love.

As a wife, mother, career woman and resident of Santa Maria, I feel sense of obligation in helping make our community the best it can be.  I am proud to be an active member of several non-profit organizations and am fortunate in the relationships that have developed because of such involvement.

Last, but definitely not least, my family.  My husband and I have been married for 25 years and have a son and a daughter.  Our son is a plumber in the Bay Area and our daughter is a Senior at Righetti High School.  We are hoping for grandkids in the future.
