STAR: Carol York

Hello, I am Carol York. After taking a Tap Class at my local Community Center at age 5, I knew I liked to dance. As a teen, I regularly practiced the Twist in my bedroom, but my life took a different twist when rather than pursuing a career in dance, I became a banker! At Bank of Marin, I am a First Vice President and Regional Manager, which means I "choreograph" branch employees in Sonoma, Napa and Alameda counties to build strong long-lasting customer relationships. We just opened our newest branch in Healdsburg, and we’re quickly becoming a proud part of this special community by attending local events, partnering with non-profits and volunteering.

Thank you to Bank of Marin for sponsoring me, Mark Novak for teaching me the moves and my husband Tony for being my biggest fan.
