More about me:
Every day I just want to do my small part to change the world! I am a walking, talking, ball of passion for helping individuals improve their financial lives. I have been lucky enough to work for credit unions over time that have helped me do that. And not only through my regular job duties, but also through credit union “extracurricular” activities that help advance credit unions across the country.
What is your favorite thing about working at your credit union?
Having the opportunity to work with a group of individuals who are committed to helping individuals help themselves.
If there was one thing you could tell people about credit unions, what would you say?
We exist solely to help you save money and borrow in a way that supports your lifetime goals instead of hindering them. We always strive to do what is in your long-term best interests whenever possible.
What did you want to be when you were a kid, and why?
It was my dream to be an astronaut. I always wanted to float around weightless. Maybe it was the pictures of astronauts playing with floating globs of Tang that did it.
If you only had one opportunity to travel, where would you go?
I did have a chance to visit the place I always wanted to go – Macchu Picchu. Since I’ve checked one of the places-to-see-before-I-die off my list, the next one down is Ireland. I’ll make it there someday.
