Hi, I'm Maria! My primary role here at FCCU is as a Mortgage Lending Officer, but I am also able to assist members with a variety of other financing solutions.

One of my favorite parts of what I do at FCCU is establishing a long-term relationship with our members by engaging in conversations and getting to know them personally with the objective of finding ways to really put them in a better financial position.

I wish more members knew about our Financial Coaches because there are many people in our community who would benefit from it. Our Financial Coaches can offer guidance on financial crises, improving credit scores, and budgeting strategies to help every member be in a better financial position than when we met them.

Hi, I'm Yolanda! My favorite part about working at FCCU is that our whole team comes together by volunteering for our communities. “Concern for community” is one of the 7 Cooperative Principles for Credit Unions, and is something that our team takes to heart!

Along with being a loan officer, I am also one of our Financial Coaches, so I can provide guidance on improving credit scores, budgeting, reducing loan delinquencies, and navigating financial crises.

I wish more people knew how important it is to start building credit sooner rather than later. Building credit takes time, so the sooner your start, the sooner you will qualify for better loan rates when you need them!
