I entered the credit union world in 2011 when I started in the Government Affairs department of the Michigan Credit Union League. After a few years I moved into the Regulatory and Legislative Affairs Specialist position which I held for 5 years at the league prior to joining Comply-Yes!. While at the Michigan Credit Union League I acquired extensive experience in the positions I’ve held. I gained valuable skills in Political Affairs and lobbying on behalf of the league before moving into regulatory affairs where I helped Michigan Credit Unions with regulatory advocacy and answering their compliance questions. I developed a domestic violence recovery loan program which was published by Filene. I have also had the privilege of training the World Council of Credit Unions’ staff and Ukrainian credit union trade associations on gender discrimination in lending, and Ukrainian regulators on the U.S. Regulatory System.

 

Before my time at the Michigan Credit Union League I worked in Communications at the Michigan House of Representatives and in 2007 I earned my Bachelor of Science degree in Interdisciplinary Studies in Social Science from Michigan State University.
