Why is serving on the Credit Union Board important to you?
I love the direct connection between our credit union and our members. I know that we are helping many Ironworkers that others wouldn’t. We are very active in our community also. Working with Teri and her team is an awesome experience.
What makes you uniquely qualified to serve on the Credit Union Board?
I know Ironworkers, and the struggles many of us face. I have first-hand experience of what can be accomplished with financial guidance and support from our own credit union, and I’m very proud to share my experiences with our members.
How do you spend your free time? Riding my Harley.
If you could be a superhero, who would you be? Deadpool
What would you like members to know about you?
I am a 3rd generation Union member, and my daughter is also an Ironworker!
