“Having served in all operational departments within the credit union industry, including the Call Center, Branches, Card Services, Lending, Collections, and Marketing & Business Development, never did I imagine my whole career trajectory would change, the very first day I started as a teller, at the age of 19, over 25 years ago,” Shelley said while reflecting on her career.
