Angie Lauder, Manager, NMLS # 1380902
I joined the Stewart’s Federal Credit Union in January 2004, where I began my lifelong career. I began as a part time teller when my children were in grade school. Members of the credit union would soon get to know me as the one with the impeccable memory. I branched out from the teller position and got my hands into the operations side of the business. This position allowed me to grow with the credit union substantially. I gained knowledge on all back-office responsibilities, accounting aspects of the banking industry, general ledger balancing, membership, and the debit card platform.
With my years of gaining knowledge, communication, and skills of the credit union, and the confidence and trust of our members I was granted the position of being the loan officer. This role that I took grew to be more than a title for me. Our company, partners and members have taught me that sometimes someone’s story is more important than what’s on paper. The relationships and friendships that I have formed over the years with our members has allowed me to grow with empathy and compassion.
My dedication, compassion and love for the credit union has led me my current role as manager. With this role, I am responsible for managing the overall operations of the credit union including loans, business & employee development, member services, product sales, and membership growth.
As I continue my career journey here at Stewart’s Federal Credit Union, I will continue to strive on building lifelong relationships one member at a time.
Sandy Lowe, MSR, Notary
I began as a partner with Stewart’s at the plant over 20 years ago. In September of 2005, I moved to the credit union, and this was the best decision I could have made. I have never looked back and enjoy making a difference for our members everyday financial needs!
My responsibilities include overseeing three key areas of the credit union. First and foremost working with new members. This is truly a pleasure and has been especially rewarding opening new accounts for children and watching them grow up, get their first debit card, apply for our scholarship and/or begin a career. Secondly, the debit card program represents a loyal relationship between the credit union and our members. It’s important that we have a secure and efficient program. The card program has totally transformed since my early days, transactions are now live, the cards have a chip and are Apple Pay and Google Pay compatible. Last but not least, building the Marketing Program along with our diverse Committee is one of my favorite accomplishments. We publish a newsletter quarterly, lots of fun promotions, loan specials and now have a social media presence!
I love the credit union’s People Helping People philosophy, we do this everyday without hesitation at Stewart’s FCU, that’s why I love my job!
Chelsea Waldron, MSR, Notary, Loan Officer NMLS #2127714
I started my career at Stewart’s FCU in October of 2021 with 5 years of previous banking experience. I learned very quickly after starting here what a wonderful company I became a part of.
My focus at the credit union is loans and daily operations.
My favorite part about the job is helping our members achieve their goals. Whether it’s buying a new car, home improvements, refinancing for a better rate or building credit, it always a great feeling knowing that we helped make their goals happen.
I look forward to serving our members for many years to come!
Brenda Fairbanks, MSR, Notary
I joined the Stewart’s Federal Credit Union family in October of 2021. Although my experience with financial institutions have been limited, I am very proud to acknowledge that I have over 20 years’ experience in customer service, contributing my talents with design, sales, and administrative support roles in construction and healthcare. Having a perceptive mind and a self-motivated disposition has helped me to achieve many goals which I intend to utilize to help the credit union flourish.
As you walk into the credit union, I am one of the first friendly faces you see as my role as a member representative. Whether you’re in person or on the phone, your daily transactions are one of my main priorities, which I am dedicated to ensuring you are always satisfied and comfortable as a member. I contribute to all aspects of the day-to-day transactions, focusing on social media exposure with up-to-date information on loans, memberships, an overall leading growth of the credit union.
What I love most about the credit union is everyone is so genuine and kind. The members of the credit union really do make a difference and being here for them is an absolute pleasure.
Jordan Arnold, MSR
I joined Stewart’s as a credit union intern in the Summer of 2021. I loved it so much that, after graduating college in the Spring of 2022, I began my career back here as a full-time member service representative. Although I did not begin with any banking experience, I have learned a lot from the staff and have received so much encouragement from them, as well as the members. The best thing about working here is the community of members. Being one of the first people you see when entering the credit union, I get to interact with most of our members. Whether it be a quick phone call or a visit to the office, it is a pleasure to get to know these individuals and provide them with personalized services in a friendly and welcoming environment.
