VP, Community Lender
Starting business as customers, turning into friends, and maintaining long-term relationships is of vital
importance to Heather as she goes about her day. With a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration
with an emphasis in Management, Heather started her banking career in 1992 as a Teller, working her
way to Vice President, Community Lender. Heather has a wide span of knowledge in banking, specializing
in secondary market and portfolio mortgage lending, small business lending including SBA 504 financing,
BSA, compliance and more.
Staying involved in the community of Ely is one way that Heather chooses to stay connected to her customers
and expand relationships to reach far beyond banking. Holding multiple positions on boards throughout Ely
has allowed Heather to do just that; she is a current member of Rotary Club of Ely, and serves on the
Boards of Northwoods Partners and Ely Area Community Foundation.
Outside of work, Heather loves living at the end of the road, spending time with her husband, family and
friends on the lake, traveling, camping, and hiking.
