Ann talks about her role in the bank and life outside the bank.

What are you passionate about in your role? I take pride in building long-term relationships with my customers. This enables me to understand their businesses and meet their financing needs in a timely manner. My referral sources have told me that they keep coming back to me because I “get the deals done.” I have a genuine concern for achieving the best outcome for my customers. Sometimes that means saving them money. Sometimes it means having them take a long, hard look at what they’re planning to do.

What are some of your hobbies and interests? Golfing, reading and spending time with family and friends.

Are you involved in any community causes or organizations? I am a member of Builders and Remodelers Association of Central MA, and I also serve on the Worcester Regional Chamber of Commerce Golf Tournament.

Can you tell us a fun fact about yourself? In high school, I was a three-sport athlete all four years. I served as a team captain in all three sports and have been inducted into my high school’s Athletic Hall of Fame.
