Welcome our GCU Branders!


Over the years we have had some amazing employees come through our doors, Employees that truly make GCU what it is today! We decided to give some of our employees a chance at helping out the marketing team and showcase what we do in and out of the office. We selected 6 employees who work on the front line to represent Guardian Credit Union in the branches and around the communities at events! I’d like to take the time to introduce our GCU Branders! They each wrote out a small post about themselves so when you see them in the branches please feel free to say Hi! They won’t bite I promise!

What I like most about Guardian Credit Union is its commitment to it’s employees and members. The employee recognition program is awesome for employees and the fact that my voice is heard and I can reward my co-workers is a great perk!

What do you like most about working for Guardian Credit Union?

I like that GCU gives back to my community. Some events we do for the community are Seasons of Giving, Guardian Cares and Dollars-for-Scholars. Over the time I have worked here I have seen an enormous effort to try and show our community that we truly care about them. I believe it is what makes us stand out from other credit unions. I enjoy coming to work because I have grown to know many of our members and we are always welcome to new ones!

What is your favorite activity to do in the summertime?

My favorite activity to do is to spend time down by the lake by 7 bridges. I don’t get down there very often but when I do I feel relaxed and I am able to reflect on anything going on in my day to day life. I also like to attend a number of events that GCU does for South Milwaukee in the summer. I love checking out Evening on the Ave., Dinner and a Movie and the Heritage Parade.

We all enjoy what we do, care about each other, and care about our member. I’ve seen employees go out of their way to help members. It is important to work with a staff that is as committed to what you do and treats each other with that same respect.

What is your favorite activity to do in the summertime?

My favorite activity to do in Milwaukee is head the to Wisconsin State Fair! I love the State Fair because, it is like a combination of all the festivals in one. It’s like being a big kid all over again! I like to make sure I get on all the rides, eat a jumbo turkey leg and enjoy a cold Milwaukee brew! I have not ever tried a Cream Puff though, sadly the line is always so long. Hopefully, I’ll get around to trying on this year!
