What does a typical day look like for you?
It depends on the time of year. In the first and second quarters of the year, I may be spending a lot of my time applying for grants. Throughout the year, I often communicate with businesses seeking loans for their small business or for the development of affordable housing. Also throughout the year, and especially in the fourth quarter, I have staff prepare for the annual audit.
What are the values that drive you?
All people should be treated well!
