“I am grateful to have had a long career in finance where the journey of helping clients through thick and thin is incredibly fulfilling.”

In the role as Senior Relationship Manager, Chris leverages her 28 years of private and commercial banking and investment management experience to deliver the highest level of the white glove service experience her clients have come to love and appreciate. With a storied career that includes duties ranging from portfolio manager, business and partnership valuation expert, credit analyst, and loan underwriter, Chris has an impressive breadth of knowledge and expertise that her clients find invaluable. She has a long history of working closely with high net worth and ultra-high net worth individuals, families, family offices, as well as foundations, endowments, and institutions.

She can be seen each year at the annual “Beat the Bridge” 5K raising funds for research into children’s diabetes and at the Susan B. Koman “Race for the Cure” triathlon supporting a cure for breast cancer. She also loves her time making homemade pasta, focaccia and other delicacies as she is an incredible cook.
