Q. What led you to Argent and what makes it unique?

A. Towards the end of 2018, an employee in Argent’s Shreveport office (who I previously worked with at another firm) recommended Argent to myself and another former colleague in Baton Rouge.

Q. What does the company mean to you?

A. Argent is a top-notch, reputable company and I couldn’t have asked to be a part of a better organization. As a working mother of a middle-schooler, Argent has provided me with an abundance of flexibility and independence which I will forever be grateful for. I would also like to send a very special thanks to all of Argent’s leadership teams for the work they have done to provide a seamless transition for employees during the current pandemic.


Q. What is on your wish list for the next 10 years with Argent?

A. I look forward to nurturing the company’s core values, while establishing and nurturing long-standing relationships here in the Baton Rouge community.
