Meet Riverland Employee Taylor Ebneter!


Taylor is Riverland Bank’s Director of Operations and Information Technology. She was born in Greensboro, North Carolina, and her family bounced around for a while until landing in Charlotte, North Carolina. Then they moved to Shakopee, Minnesota when she was nine years old. She started banking as a part-time teller at Norwest Bank when she was 16, and the rest is history. Taylor was asked to answer a few more questions about herself, and here’s what she had to say!
