My motivation

I was never called into the mission field, but I do believe God called me to where I am today and that motivates and excites me every day as I look at it as my mission field!

My latest accomplishments

I was recently promoted to President/CEO of CP Federal Credit Union.  After 19 years of service at the credit union it has been such a rewarding, monumental accomplishment.

Next big goal

My next goal is to write a book.  I don't have the title formulated yet but know that it will be about finding unrivaled joy in our lives!

Why is choosing your own path important?

We weren't made to be like anyone else so it isn't possible to follow someone else's path as it is not ours to follow.  Be unique!
