“VSECU is an organization that has committed itself to making a difference in the lives of our members and our staff. I appreciate VSECU’s focus on always putting our members and staff first, from working with members to resolve challenging credit issues to empowering staff to make their voices heard. VSECU demonstrates our commitment to protecting and improving the environment with our VGreen loan program and our promotion of and participation in solar energy. I admire our values, and I’m honored to be a part of charting our actions. My strong financial background enables me to analyze and seek clarification of financial information that is presented to the Board. I am always willing to ask questions, which I believe leads to better understanding of the issues for all of us. I think it’s important that all parts of our membership are represented on the Board, and I am able to represent members in the southwestern part of the state. I have found my time on the VSECU Board to be very interesting and rewarding, and I would greatly appreciate the opportunity to continue to serve. "
