Why I love working at Leighton State Bank

Leighton State Bank is a community bank, and that role is taken seriously from the top down. Employees know and care for each other and our customers on a personal level, and the Bank conducts its business in a way that ensures we are continuously investing in the areas we serve.

Favorite way LSB gives back

My favorite way LSB gives back is by empowering the employees to dedicate their time to better our community. Not only are we encouraged to volunteer, but we are also invited to share our own ideas regarding charities to make donations to.


I live in Knoxville with my fiancé, Bella. I enjoy being outside – fishing, gardening, or hiking, with my family and friends. When I’m not enjoying the outdoors, I like to watch football, read books, and learn about history.
