She and other financial professionals created the “My Money, My Life” program, which was a financial literacy program for low- and moderate-income youth. Her responsibilities also include outreach to employees and neighborhood organizations, and encouraging volunteerism with organizations that assist low and moderate income folks. She has also been involved as her company representative with non-profits that apply to the Federal Home Loan Bank system using the Affordable Housing Program, which includes homeless shelters and senior living facilities.
