Forty Under 40 Mover and Shaker awards are presented each year to a select group of individuals who have demonstrated both significant community involvement and business excellence. Forty awards may seem like a lot, but so many distinguished professionals from the area are nominated by their colleagues each year, that being selected as one of the final honorees is a great accomplishment. This year I had the honor of receiving one of these awards.

Since joining Rhinebeck Bank in 2013, I have been actively involved in my community; a dedication that is shared across the Rhinebeck Bank family. I have been an active member of both the Kiwanis Club, and the Child Care Counsel of Dutchess and Putman for a number of years now, and I take my roles there very seriously. My hard work and dedication led me to be elected as Treasurer for the Child Care Counsel, and I will soon be the President of the Kiwanis Club. Working at Rhinebeck Bank allowed me to help my community in another way, by assisting people in their everyday banking and helping business owners grow their companies. Knowing that my actions each day, both at work and volunteering, contribute to the improvement of this community is very rewarding.

Richard Kolosky, SVP Commercial Team Leader, was kind enough to nominate me for this honor, for which I am very grateful. To me, being selected for the Forty Under 40 Award is not only a great honor, but an even greater responsibility. As a recipient, I feel I owe it to the community that awarded it to me to continue going above and beyond to further the betterment of my home, the Hudson Valley.
