Summed up, I manage a large loan portfolio, mainly consisting of commercial real estate loans but some oil and gas/C&I.
What is your favorite part of working here?
Top 2 are the atmosphere and my co-workers.
If you could pick anyone to have lunch with (real or fictional, dead or alive) who would it be and why?

Spend time with my husband and my family, listen to you-tube sermons, go to the gym, cook, read, and just be creative.
