Connecting with people, a basic value that Melissa Reinsch learned growing up in Burke, South Dakota, a small town where relationships with people have always been important to her. She was pleasantly surprised to find that she could make those same types of connections with her customers at Lincoln Federal Savings Bank.
After attending the University of South Dakota, she was introduced to the banking industry. "I was looking for a new opportunity and wanted to be in a job where I could learn," says Melissa. She quickly caught on and worked as a teller, a supervisor, and now as our Vice President of Deposit Services.
Melissa looks forward to coming to work each day because no day is the same. In her role she gets the best of both worlds – customer service and operations. Melissa works to improve day to day operations, train employees, and still provide customer service at the branch level.
"Working to develop great employees and helping our customers is what makes my job enjoyable," says Melissa. "I'm so grateful to have the opportunity to help people meet their goals regardless of what they are, whether that is setting up a savings account or teaching an employee something new."
In her spare time, Melissa enjoys spending time with family and friends, cooking, running and getting involved with local organizations like JDRF.
