final tracy copyHow long have you been with the League?

In April 2021, I celebrated by 40th anniversary as an HCUL employee. 

What did you do prior to joining the League?

I was a student at Cannon’s Business College and worked part-time at a law firm in town.

What do you enjoy most about your job?

The people, especially credit union volunteers who are the essence that makes our industry unique.  Credit union volunteers are retirees, employed full-time, fishermen/women, hunters, world travelers, educators, sport fans, etc.  I have learned so much from my conversations with volunteers.  A common desire in credit union volunteers is their passion for the success of their credit union. 

Do you have any hidden talents or hobbies?  

Growing up my family spent weekends at the oval track of Hawaii Raceway Park.  During the week, it was repairing getting the car ready for the weekend.  Later in life, before having a family, I spent my weekends working on salvage vehicles we would purchase at auction and sell it.  This was a hobby with my stepfather and brother.  We purchased a Camaro I ended up keeping for myself.  It was beautiful! 

What’s something most people don’t know about you?

My senior in high school, I worked in the tech library on Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard.  Today, I serve as a deaconess at Ka Makua Mau Loa.
