When I was little I remember having dreams of growing up to be a teacher, or a doctor, and for a short time the first female president. I wanted to be someone who made a difference in others’ lives, possibly even saved lives. My job would matter, and I would love going to work every day.
As I grew up, I started to wonder if I would ever find a job that I could be that passionate about, or if being an adult really just meant that you found a job you could tolerate. I wouldn’t have guessed my future belonged to the world of finance, but I am so glad it does!
Solarity has changed everything I thought I knew about working for a Credit Union. I knew right away I had found a place where I could spend the rest of my working days, and happily! I wake up in the morning and I actually want to go to work. I’m helping people gain financial security and peace of mind. I’m simplifying their lives, and I’m watching people realize their dreams of buying a car, or becoming a home owner. Every day I get to help people, and that’s what I’ve always really been passionate about, the people.
Almost equally as exciting as helping people, was finding out that my co-workers are just as passionate about it as I am. There is something to be said about being part of an organization that truly cares. I find that my co-workers, and Solarity as a whole, have a vision that aligns with my own. We all play a unique role within the Credit Union, but in the end we are unified by our passion for making a difference.
As a manager I find myself being challenged by my new responsibilities, and I love a good challenge. I’m getting to help staff learn new tasks, and move up within the company. I’m dedicated to my employees and I feel I’m making a difference in their lives, and helping Solarity grow too. I’m even helping my local community by developing new business relationships and strengthening existing ones. At the end of the day, I feel honored to be in my position at Solarity. I am proud to be a Solarian.
