VSECU is pleased to welcome Elizabeth LaPerle as a mortgage originator in its Berlin Branch, 365 Paine Turnpike N. LaPerle brings with her 25 years of retail banking experience at Granite Savings Bank, Vermont National Bank and most recently at Northfield Savings Bank. She has held positions in management and business development and has 18 years experience in consumer lending.
“I like the fact that VSECU is committed to the community. Decisions are made locally here in our own backyard. If members have questions about their mortgages, they can call us here and not some mortgage company out of state,” LaPerle said. “I’m very happy to be a part of the VSECU team where our members are top priority.” LaPerle can assist all types of borrowers who live or work in Vermont—the first-time homebuyer or the homeowner seeking to refinance a current home or looking for a second home.
An active member of the Barre community, LaPerle has volunteered with the Barre Homecoming Committee, Barre Salvation Army and the Central Vermont Chamber of Commerce. LaPerle has been active in the Barre Rotary Club for 15 years and currently serves as its treasurer. An avid sports fan, LaPerle is the assistant coach for two AAU boys’ basketball teams. LaPerle, husband Gary and sons Travis and Justin live in Barre Town.
VSECU is a not-for-profit financial cooperative, which offers a full range of affordable financial products and services to its member owners. People eligible to join the credit union include everybody who lives or works in Vermont.
