Growing up as an Army brat gave Kariene Fortner a unique perspective. Born in Germany, she spent most of her childhood in Hawaii, and graduated from high school in California. Her time in sunny climes sparked her affinity for a tropical paradise, which is how she ended up accepting a job offer in the retail industry and moving to the Gulf Coast of Alabama. When she isn’t helping her clients find ways to make their dreams come true, you can find Kariene living her own dreams on the boat or at the beach with her husband and rescue dogs.

As Financial Wellness Manager, North Region, Kariene is passionate about setting financial goals and creating financial plans. She wants others to realize their dreams and feel like they are working hard to achieve them. Kariene loves Regions Bank’s Next Step online resources because she understands that asking for financial advice can be intimidating. Coming from a military family, she understands that many people struggle with their finances, and knows that easy access to resources can help people achieve their financial goals, just like she has.
