Christine Walker
Service Center Manager


Christine Walker has been with Suncoast Credit Union for over twelve years. They have a program, Team Suncoast, where they encourage their employees to go out and volunteer. Christine volunteered in our office and said, "I chose UWCC because they use funds responsibly and effectively. I also love that it's local and helps my own community members!"
Suncoast approaches philanthropic efforts with one mission in mind - improve the lives of our members. Through our Team Suncoast employee volunteer program and the Suncoast Credit Union Foundation charitable donations, we do just that.
