2018 Rising Star of the Year Award Winner
Corry Federal Credit Union
This award recognizes rising professionals with two years or less of experience in the credit union industry. In the last two years, Chelsea has proven to be a valuable team player at her credit union. Colleagues describe her as being “dedicated, hard-working, and eager.” She began as a part-time marketer and has made herself indispensable, paving her own way as the first marketing specialist at her credit union. Since then, her role has evolved into one that is full-time and she has been charged with leading a number of big projects such as a rebrand, launch of a new website and redesign of marketing collaterals. She is heavily involved with CUNA, having attended the CUNA Marketing & Business Development School for the last two years and plans to return this year to earn her Credit Union Certified Marketing Executive Designation. She is active in the Corry community as an instructor at the Corry Higher Education Council, teaching classes each semester to a variety of students looking to further their education in topics such as Blogging for Beginners, Intro to Facebook and Social Media for Small Business. She understands the value of sharing knowledge with others, paying if forward, and truly living the credit union philosophy.
