“I am interested in continuing to serve on the Board at VSECU because I enjoy this opportunity to put my extensive banking knowledge to work while at the same time fulfilling my personal goal of making sustainable, positive impacts at the individual and community level. My many years in the banking industry have given me vast experience in banking regulations and compliance, IT security and technology, and staff development. I support VSECU’s mission to empower Vermont communities to achieve greater prosperity, and their commitment to values-based banking and the triple bottom line. I think VSECU is well positioned to make a meaningful difference by making investments in enterprises that create positive and sustainable social, economic, and environmental impacts that favorably impact the lives of Vermonters and help them achieve financial success. The combination of my work at Housing Vermont and my prior banking experience help make me a strong contributor to the Board.”
