When Christina moved to Benkelman in 2008, she was drawn to the Bank because of the motto, “Personal Banking Like You Remember.” Christina’s background was in early childhood education, but helping people achieve their financial goals sounded like a new challenge and a great way to build upon her skills.
As an educator, Christina feels that it is very important to guide and support her customers through their financial journey. She notes that, "Benkelman is a small, aging community. There are many elderly couples that follow the tradition of one spouse being in charge of their finances. Unfortunately, when that spouse passes away, the surviving spouse can be perplexed about where to start. I assist those customers in learning about their finances and support them moving forward. It’s instances like this that make me feel like I make a difference in customers’ lives."
Christina’s customers know that she cares and can help them with any of their banking needs. She also loves to get involved in the community. Each year, in conjunction with the PinC Ladies, the bank hosts the Caring and Sharing Tree that allows everyone in Benkelman to give back by providing gifts for families in need. The PinC Ladies then wrap and deliver the gifts to local families.
When Christina is not at work, she enjoys spending time with her husband and three daughters. She especially makes time for reading, crocheting, and doing crafts with the girls. She has been a member of The PinC Ladies (Priorities in Community) for many years and enjoys the projects that they do to contribute to the community.
