Describe how your role carries out the GreenStone mission of supporting rural communities and agriculture.

As a loan accountant, my primary job duty is to handle all the outgoing wires for GreenStone. My job keeps the funds going out to our customers so that they are able to operate and make their business purchases.  

 

What do you enjoy most about your role at GreenStone? 

I really enjoy the fast pace of being a loan accountant. With all the transactions going on daily, I feel like I am accomplishing a lot for GreenStone and our customers on a daily basis.  

 

What changes have been incorporated in your role to meet evolving customer needs? 

The accounting department has played an integral role in the new Paycheck Protection Program. The Paycheck Protection Program came out this past year to help support businesses through the pandemic and has substantially helped our customers during this difficult year.   

 

What do you enjoy doing in your free time? 
I enjoy the outdoors, especially biking when it is nice out. I also enjoy spending time with my friends and family.

East Lansing, MI 

 

Describe how your role carries out the GreenStone mission of supporting rural communities and agriculture.
For me, all of my “customers” are internal branch staff. I help provide answers to questions of “how to” for the customer service representatives, so they can successfully service our external customers’ needs. I take pride in delivering quality service so that GreenStone can keep our customers financially healthy and happy. 


What do you enjoy most about your role at GreenStone? 
GreenStone has given me opportunities to grow throughout my career. Our employees are a great group who want to see GreenStone and our customers succeed.  We also give so much back to our local communities and children. I thank GreenStone for the many years of employment and look forward to the next ten years with the best company in Michigan. 

 

What changes have been incorporated in your role to meet evolving customer needs? 
Our technology is always changing, finding new and better ways to get the job done. I have been involved in numerous projects over the years that have created better service options for our employees to support members. I also constantly challenge myself look for process improvements and changes that will make for a better workflow.  


What do you enjoy doing in your free time? 
The 4-H horse project has been a huge part of my life over the last 13 years; I am a project leader and both my daughters showed horses. I am currently taking a break from that as my girls are both adults now, but I have a new granddaughter that I am sure will take up the reins when she is old enough.
