Tell us about your business and what you do?
America First Credit Union is the sixth largest credit union in the United States with over 11 billion in assets. I am a local business development representative. My job is to help drive business into the credit union, everything from consumer, business and commercial. I do this by helping new members and businesses open a membership and help facilitate new and current members, consumer and business loan applications.
Why did you become an Ambassador for the Henderson Chamber of Commerce?
I have been involved in different capacities of the Henderson Chamber, and I have found it is the most helpful and engaged chamber in the Southern Nevada Community. I am happy to sit as an Ambassador as I filled the spot my manager once filled as an Ambassador.
How has the Henderson Chamber helped your business?
The Henderson Chamber has helped in different ways. First, it helped by allowing me to meet new people in the Henderson community with their virtual networking events and ribbon cuttings. Second, the staff at the Chamber has been helpful by listening to our needs and tailoring things to help the credit union get more value out of its membership.
