Team Member Spotlight
When did you start working at Ironworkers USA Credit Union?
On November 1, 2022.
Why did you want to work at Ironworkers USA Credit Union?
I retired two years ago. I started to feel a little restless as the winter approached. I’ve known Teri and several other employees at Ironworkers USA Credit Union for a long time and I knew I would enjoy working with them.
Tell us a little about yourself. (Interests, funny stories, hobbies)
I don’t really have any specific hobbies. I do enjoy yard work and planting too many flowers. I also love animals, so we dogsit whenever we get the opportunity. We haven’t been able to bring ourselves to get another pet after losing our last two cats, one was 22 years old and one was 12 years old.
What do you like to do in your free time?
We spend a lot of time up at our little place at Pine Hollow Lake. It’s a beautiful, small lake and we have made many friends and memories there. They have some of the best sunsets in the world there.
Where is your favorite place to vacation or travel?
We don’t really travel much, but if I was traveling, I would prefer all tropical places. I’m a big fan of drinks with umbrellas in them.
What is special about the Credit Union?
The people that work there. It is probably one of the MOST caring credit unions I know. They always put the members first and really treat them as family.
If you could choose one song to play every time you walked into a room, what would you choose and why?
“Uptown Funk” by Mark Ronson – makes me want to dance. I actually played this every morning at a small credit union I once worked at. We did the dance and it was a great way to get the energy going every morning!
If you could have any superhero power, what would it be and why?
I’d keep it simple – talking to animals. I’m a huge animal lover and would love to be able to know what they are thinking, what they want, what hurts, etc.
Thanks, Cathy for being such an amazing part of this team! We can’t do it without you!
