What’s new at your company this year? "We’re growing, increasing profitability and expanding our footprint into new towns in southeastern Wisconsin. In this economy, I am proud to say that Foundations Bank is solid and growing." 
What was the best investment/client/project you’ve been involved with? "Starting this bank with my husband. No kidding. It’s been a wonderful ride so far."
What was the funniest or most interesting moment of your career? "On the funny side, I was working in a branch of a large bank in the ’80s. A man, who was not a customer, walked into the bank and wanted to use the restroom. I could not allow him to do so because the restroom was not in a public area. He became very angry and put a hex on me that ‘would make my fingers fall off.’ I still have all 10, intact. They never teach you how to deal with that in college!"
