What makes you proud to work at NLB?  “The amazing employees at NLB make me proud to work here.  NLB does a great job being employee-oriented as well as community-minded and it shows in the workforce employed here.  The bank supports community service and volunteer hours, so you see a lot of our employees involved and active in the community; not because they are asked to, but because they want to.  People genuinely care about one another and take care of each other”

What keeps you motivated? “My family, both at home and at work.  I have an amazing husband, three beautiful children, and such a great work family as well.  My work family makes it easy to come to work every day while my home family makes it easy to leave at the end of the day.  I am truly grateful.”
