Name: Kathy Wills

Age: 43

Title: SVP/Private Banker – MidFirst Bank

Married/Single: Married 18½ years!

Kids: 13 year old daughter (who is literally smarter than me)!

City you live in: Scottsdale – all my life! Proud to be a native.

Describe a typical day in your life: Workout, wonderful husband makes me an egg white omelet, drop daughter at school, attend board or committee meeting, meet with clients and handle client issues (MidFirst Bank), dinner with the family, walk our dogs, read a good book.

I was born…

moving fast! I don’t do anything slowly.

My favorite thing about Arizona…

the outdoors! Love that there are so many options to be active here – hiking, skiing, boating, camping, golfing, patio dining, snow/sun, etc.

I’m listening to…

Kid Rock and Darius Rucker.

My family…

is awesome. I have a supportive husband and great daughter with a dad and sister/family who all live relatively close.

If I could have dinner with anyone, it would be…

with my husband (on the patio with candles and wine); okay – and maybe Jimmy Fallon.

One thing I cannot live without…

lip gloss!

When I was younger, I wanted to be…

anything but a banker (figures)!

I’m inspired by…

my dad who taught me to work hard for what you want and my mom who taught me to have many friends and a good social life. Having balance is the key to life!

The one person who motivates me is…

my trainer Jeremy Scott with Jeremy Scott Fitness. He practices what he preaches every single day which is next to impossible! I have learned some incredible things from Jeremy about health and wellness that have changed my life.

If I could change anything in the world, it would be…

to cure cancer! Way too many people I know have been affected.

The perfect day would be…

drinking coffee on the deck in Pinetop, then playing golf with my family, a casual bbq dinner with wine/friends/great music.

My first job was…

a cashier at Dillard’s. I quickly learned retail was not in my future when my most important task was making sure the hangers all faced the same direction!

My favorite escape…

the White Mountains or anywhere in our motor home.

My life…

kicks ass! It is busy and scheduled but loads of fun.

I’m currently working on…

networking in LA for new clients for MidFirst Bank and joining 2 new boards – Cortney’s Place (helping adults with special needs) and Scottsdale Center for Performing Arts (my fun passion). Also planning a great 2015 Awards event for AZ Business Leadership as their Past President.

Always…

be closing! Just kidding – always give back in some way.

Never…

burn bridges.

Favorite Quote…

”Work hard, play hard”.

Biggest Dream…

raise a happy, independent daughter who contributes to society.

My Pet Peeve(s)…

lazy people and gum popping.
