Tell us about yourself and your company: I was born in St. Helena and have worked in retail banking in St. Helena for almost 35 years. I am a third generation Napa Valley resident. I am very community oriented, and I and have served on numerous boards throughout my career, such as the St. Helena Boys & Girls Club and the St. Helena Chamber of Commerce.
My commitment to the communities where I live and work is very important to me. I have always loved working with people and enjoy helping them achieve their goals.
That is why I love working for Wells Fargo Bank, because we believe when our communities succeed, so do we. In fact, last year Wells Fargo gave more than $1.5 million to schools and nonprofit organizations in Marin, Napa and Sonoma counties. My husband of 33 years, Chris Rubio, also works for Wells Fargo Bank and our son, Christopher, is an actor in Los Angeles.
Is there a major accomplishment in the past year or so that you would like to share?: About two years ago I took a big leap in my career and decided to leave a management position and take on a senior client-facing role within the Wells Fargo Private Bank. I have been able to focus my strengths and experience in delivering financial solutions to my clients, and this is very gratifying to me.
