Name, Title, Company Name
Samantha Branson, Relationship Manager at First Financial Bank
What this really means is that:
I spend my day wearing a lot of different hats, but the majority of it is spent servicing my clients.
The best part of my job is:
The people, both clients and co-workers.
I have lived in Bloomington since:
How did you land in Bloomington and what has kept you here?
I came here for college and stayed because I love it. I grew into adulthood here, started my career here, met my husband here, and built my life here. Bloomington is home.
The coolest new thing (or new to me) in town is:
It’s not new but the coolest thing about Bloomington is being able to experience all the benefits of city life while also being able to enjoy beautiful scenery and green space. You get the best of both worlds!
My favorite restaurant/local shop in Bloomington is:
It is without a doubt Michael’s Uptown Café. You cannot beat the food, cocktails, service, and atmosphere.
On the weekends you’ll find me:
Spending time with my wonderful husband, Kurt, our family, and our friends. If the weather’s nice you can bet we will be tending to our flower and vegetable gardens or relaxing on our boat on Lake Monroe.
The best donuts in town are from:
I don’t eat donuts but I do work next door to Crumble bakery. If you haven’t tried their sweet treats you are missing out.
I can’t get enough of:
Bravo on Sling. I’m obsessed with the housewives of almost any city.
The thing I’m most excited for this year is:
My husband and I are expecting our first child in September so we are over the moon about beginning our adventure into parenthood together.
