In September of 2009 I was ready for my internship, a program requirement while attending Perry Technical Institute. I was interviewed at Perry Tech and was selected by Solarity Credit Union to complete an internship in their Mortgage Department.

I learned so much and enjoyed working for a great company, and I was ready to begin my journey with Solarity. One month later, I graduated from Perry Technical Institute and started working with Solarity as a part-time teller, 10 hours a week.

Within 6 months I was hired as a full-time Member Service Representative 2 at the Westside branch, where I learned everything from lending to branch operations, IRAs, how to manage the branch on a Saturday and so much more. A year and a half later I was promoted to a Member Service Representative 3 at the main branch location. This is where I gained the majority of my knowledge. I always enjoyed doing my work and assisting the members.

My career path did not end there, however. I was later hired as lead Member Service Representative at the Wal-Mart location, where I also assisted with managing the branch. I then made my transition back to the main branch, landing me where I am now: a Mortgage Loan Officer Assistant.

I plan to continue to grow and one day to become a Mortgage Loan Officer for Solarity Credit Union.  Solarity has so much to offer and always provides room for growth. I transitioned from a student into a new and professional career that I enjoy every day.

Solarity has offered me so much and has given me the opportunity to show my knowledge and expertise in business.  Solarity has let me show my drive to succeed and continue to grow into my profession too. Nearly seven years later, I know my career has just begun.
