In addition, her group was awarded with Best Third Year Whitepaper.
Wolff commented, “I certainly gained a better understanding of the credit union philosophy as well as how we can all work together to contribute to the success of the movement. It was a rigorous academic curriculum to be sure, although opportunities for networking and community outreach were balanced nicely throughout all 3 years. Overall a rich and rewarding experience!”
Wolff has been in the credit union industry for 10+ years, beginning her career as Administrative Assistant at Border Federal Credit Union in Del Rio, Texas. She has a passion for helping members and hopes to be able to continue to do that in the true credit union spirit of “people helping people”.
