Putting Passion to Work
Lise Tarner’s motto is “be passionate about helping people,” something she does day-in and day-out in her role as Branch Manager at Bank of Marin’s Second Street office in Napa.
Having celebrated her 30th anniversary in community banking earlier this year, Lise has found her work to be continually fulfilling because there is always something new to learn. Whether that’s on the job solving problems for customers or in her efforts as a volunteer for various organizations, including the Kiwanis Club and the Boys & Girls Club of Napa.
“This is what community banking is all about,” says Tarner. “The ability to really get to know your customers and build longstanding relationships, to adapt to new situations and be responsive to the unique needs of different people, and to contribute to nonprofit organizations – it’s what makes my job so rewarding.”
As a longtime volunteer with the Boys & Girls Club of Napa, and currently a member of their Executive Committee, Tarner has been instrumental in helping raise funds to build a 15,000 square foot clubhouse in American Canyon. Due to open in the spring of 2018, the new building will serve children ages 6-18, offering educational and recreational programs and additional family services.
A native of Napa and a graduate of Sonoma State University, Tarner’s commitment to her profession and to the community show no signs of slowing down. As a Bank that supports employees in volunteering time for causes they care about, Tarner says, “Bank of Marin’s philanthropic spirit aligns well with my passions. I look forward to continuing to learn and to give back.”
