About Tamica Foster

Tamica FosterA Navy child who traveled half the world before her third birthday, Tamicalyn (Tamica) Foster always knew she wanted to help people. With this in mind, she hit the ground running when she joined the banking world at 19, bringing with her a gift for customer service. In her 17 years of banking, she has yet to slow her momentum.

Drawing on her experience as loan officer and branch manager, she joined Regions Bank two years ago as a Financial Wellness Relationship Manager, a role which she loves because it allows this gregarious mom-of-three boys to do what she does best – talk to people and help them plan for their futures. An avid fitness fanatic, you can find Tamica entering 5k races, fostering homeless dogs or cuddled up on the sofa with her husband Alex watching Golden Girls reruns and discussing the importance of retirement planning.

Originally from Los Angeles, Mark used to surf and was a placekicker at the University of Southern California. Now living in Birmingham, Ala., Mark continues to be into fitness, but can never deny a bag of Doritos or Peanut M&Ms. He is married with two children, and has a dog named after the hotdog at Dodger Stadium - “Dodger Dog.” With two kids, teaching them about money management, including the difference between needs vs. wants, is a daily exercise for Mark and his family.
