This is my first ever blog and I am so excited! I have been thinking of all of the very most important Confucius things I wanted to impart to the Verity net world. Now is the chance to be a voice, say something magnificent, and forever be remembered as THAT Administrative Assistant.

So here it is – Christmas. That’s what I wanted to talk to you about! I know, July obviously brings to mind snow and reindeer and presents, but I am talking more specifically — one of my favorite Christmas pastime’s – Christmas movies! Which brings to mind one of my favorites, “It’s a Wonderful Life.”

What, might you ask, does July, Christmas, “It’s a Wonderful Life” and Verity have remotely in common? Bells! Well, more specifically, Angels getting their wings. From the very first day that I came to work here, I knew Verity was special. It’s a feeling I got when I walked through the door that is reinforced by the people I have met since that moment. I am constantly reminded of that movie here at Verity. George Bailey is around me every day. Verity is helping people get their wings every day! The story’s that are shared by staff about members needing financial help and how staff go above and beyond to get them that help are as inspiring and full of integrity as George Bailey was. I promise, if you come into one of our branches and listen closely, you will hear the faint tinkle of a bell.

Merry Christmas!

Hello, I am Melissa, the Administrative Assistant for the best place in the world to work. I am lucky enough to spend my days assisting some of the most interesting, intelligent, and sincere people I have ever met. I love that I have a job that changes and evolves by the minute. I love change, the consistency of inconstancy and the challenge of learning new things on the fly.

In my free time I try and fit as much adventure and experiences into my life as possible. Because in the end, it’s all about the story isn’t it?
