We are constantly growing and facing new challenges, but everyone works well together. Our company events are always fun and a good way to get to know each other better. We are a very tight-knit group, and I wouldn't have it any other way!

I'm most excited to build out our entire retention marketing strategy to drive increased user engagement.

Most financial institutions cast aside those considered low-to-moderate income. We help people with fundamental aspects of financial health – building credit, using it wisely and saving money. My goal is to continue building a company of highly talented and collaborative people driven by a mission of helping people achieve financial stability.
