She works hard and has demonstrated her effectiveness as a team player. She has an aptitude for technology which makes her even more effective to her team and her credit union. We are lucky to have her.”

These NuMark Credit Union team members were chosen for their hard work, dedication and outstanding service to the members of NuMark Credit Union. Credit Unions are owned and operated by their members, the very people they serve. The philosophy of “people helping people” is the heart of the credit union movement.
