Waller is an active member of her community, serving on the boards of Boy Scouts of America and Junior Achievement and as the Vice President of Rotary West, to name a few. She has a BA in Business and Psychology from Buena Vista University. Karen and her husband, Doug, live in Sioux Falls where they raised their 4 children and continue to appreciate all the opportunities the city provides.

“I’m excited to be part of the Bank Midwest team,” said Waller. “Understanding the unique needs of my customers and delivering personal service is important to me. I believe the team at Bank Midwest is positioned to deliver a great experience, something you should expect from your bank and your banker.”
