With a perspective based in activism, I was raised with an understanding that cooperation and respect are crucial for communities to thrive. By serving their members and the communities they are a part of, credit unions follow a similar path. Social media offered opportunity for a global platform, which resulted in one of the largest consumer migrations in history.
While continuing to advocate for consumer empowerment and economic sustainability, I offer lectures and consultations to help credit unions reach the next generation of potential members.
