Her demonstrated history of building teams and increasing both sales and fee income should significantly impact shareholder value."
Throughout her 15-year career, Kristin has developed effective mortgage talent recruiting strategies, resulting in high-performing mortgage sales teams that maximized market earnings.

I'm looking forward to building and expanding the bank's mortgage services and further growing the line of business across the franchise footprint."
