It has been a pleasure serving my family on the executive board for the last 10 years.  I know my grandfather, Ogan Royes, would have been very proud to know that we are continuing the tradition of staying connected with each other.  I am happy to extend my knowledge as a seasoned banker in the US market, by being your Treasurer for the third consecutive term.  In addition to a very rewarding career as a banker, I love being Newton’s wife and mother to Khaim, Korii and Jayson.  I am also lucky enough to be the 1st daughter/child of Clifford ‘Wesley’ Royes.

Contact me for any ideas of how we can get together outside of Family Reunions in the Southern Region! A little about me- I am an attorney, television host, and professional speaker, and whether I am hosting an event, speaking to group, conducting an interview or reporting a story, one thing you will learn about me is that I have passion for sharing and learning from the life experiences of others.
