I joined Englewood Rotary 7 years ago when I joined the Englewood Community as Branch Manager of Union Center National Bank (now Connect One Bank) on Palisade Ave. Being in the banking industry for over 30 years (unbelievable I know) I was familiar with Rotary, but this was my first opportunity to join. Being born and raised in Teaneck, I was familiar with Englewood, but Rotary got me involved in the Community.
I was immediately welcomed and soon asked to join the Board. Since joining I have served as both Treasurer and Assistant Treasurer. I am currently the Assistant Treasurer of the Club.
I grew up in a very philanthropic family. This was all I knew, so finding Rotary was the right match for me. I have enjoyed all the activities, and especially love greeting the members, walking around the room with the Happy Dollar bowl, and of course selling 50-50 at all the events. I became so good at this, that I am now known as the 50-50 lady at the 200 Club of Bergen County events, another great organization that I work with.
I have been at Connect One Bank for 8 years and I currently manage the Specialty Products area, consisting of Attorney Escrow, IOLTA, and IOLA products, tenant/landlord rent security, 1031 accounts, and many other accounts for the Bank.
