How long have you been in the credit union industry?

6 years


What drew you to credit union work? What keeps you working in the credit union field?

I always wanted to work in a bank or credit union. I never got the chance until 6 years ago. My coworkers! I cannot say anything bad about them!


What’s the best advice you can give to someone who just started their career?

Work hard, be nice to everyone, and stick with it even on hard days.


If you could make one rule that everyone had to follow, what rule would that be?

Don't be rude.


How would you describe your job to a group of five-year-olds?

Kind of like an adult Santa. I give grown ups money so that they can buy cars and other things.

Introverts and extroverts
