I have 14 years lending experience in the Savannah area. I became a part of the First Citizens team in 2011 when they entered into the Savannah Market. As a Relationship Manager I work with my clients to help them live the lives they’ve worked hard to build. My primary focus is assisting business with their existing needs and planning for the future. We have a number of vehicles to help business owners of all sizes – loans, lines and leases as well as treasury services to manage deposit accounts. Most importantly we have an entire team in Savannah working on behalf of our clients. So no matter what the need we have a solution, from car loans to trust accounts.


As of October 1st First Citizens of South Carolina and First Citizens of North Carolina have merged into one company. Two different banks that had previously been owned and controlled by two brothers have come together as one bank. This makes First Citizens the largest family controlled bank in the country and the 6th largest bank in the Southeast.


I grew up in Columbia, SC. My husband Jeff and I moved here with our 1 year old son, Campbell, 17 years ago. While not at work I am spending time with my family and friends. Jeff is the Director of the International Center at SCAD. Campbell, who is now 16, attends Islands High School and makes the best pizza at Basil’s on Wilmington Island! My daughter Caroline just turned 13, is a 7th grader at Coastal Middle School and is either on the soccer field or at Savannah Sharks (but I am not a fanatical cheer mom!). When we get away from our busy schedules we love to camp or splurge on long weekend trips to the mountains, beach or an amusement park.

2014 WIC Week Raffle/Fundraiser Social

by nawicadmin, February 13, 2014

The Coastal Georgia Chapter of the National Association of Women in Construction (NAWIC) will celebrate Women in Construction (WIC) Week March 2-8, 2014. NAWIC’s mission is to enhance the success of women in the construction industry.
The focus of WIC Week is to highlight women as a visible component of the construction industry. It is a time for the Coastal Georgia chapter to give back to the community. WIC Week also provides an occasion for NAWIC’s thousands of members across the country to raise awareness of the opportunities available for women in the construction industry and to emphasize the growing role of women in the industry.  WIC Week events are as follows:

  1. DIRTT Environmental Solutions is hosting a facility tour and lunch for Chapter Members on Monday, March 3rd.  They are undergoing a construction project that involves other Chapter Members’ companies.  Representatives from all companies will be on-hand to talk about sustainable construction.
  1. The annual WIC Week Social is on Thursday, March 6, at 6:00 PM at Johnny Harris on Victory Drive.  This event is open to members and guests and is a great networking opportunity.  Come learn about NAWIC and how it can make a difference in your professional life!
  1. At the social, NAWIC will have its annual Gift Card Raffle Fundraiser.  The money raised will go towards community outreach projects throughout the year and the scholarship fund established to support women pursuing an education in a construction-related field.  There will be a grand prize package and several smaller prize packages.  Several gift cards and/or services are bundled to create a variety of different prize packages.  Raffle tickets are available for $10 each in advance or at the event.  Contact Ways and Means Chair April Cowart at 912-234-4476 ext. 3023 to donate your service or a gift card.
  1. To celebrate and support local women in construction, NAWIC will also be presenting a $250 donation to the Savannah chapter of Society of Women Engineers during the week.
