A 2018 addition to our Manhattan staff, Arika manages the reception area and performs administrative duties. She received a Bachelor of Science in Apparel & Textile Marketing from Kansas State University in 2005. Prior to joining The Trust Company, she held management positions at Gap, Inc. and was a receptionist for Stone Creek Family Physicians in Manhattan.
Arika considers greeting clients and guests to be one of the truly satisfying parts of her job.
“I like to go above and beyond expectations to let people know that they are welcome, and to help brighten their day.”
A native of Sabetha, KS, Arika came to Manhattan to attend K-State, where she met her husband, Phil. They enjoy all things sports-related—from Royals games, to tailgating, to hosting watch parties—but especially love K-State football. This year Arika and Phil are excited for their two sons, ages 8 and 3, to join them in cheering on the Wildcats with season tickets for the whole family.
We are thrilled to have Arika on The Trust Company team!
