DEBORAH LEAL | LOAN OFFICER
STAFF SPOTLIGHT | FEBRUARY 2014
Years at the credit union
For one year
Best part about being a loan officer
Being able to help our members any way that I can. I am a strong believer that everyone deserves a chance.
What do you like most about working for the credit union?
We have members and not customers, everyone is known by name and not an account number.
Tell us about a time you WOWed a member
A longtime member came in and told me that his son was having a hard time trying to finance a vehicle loan, because he had limited credit. Our member did not know that his son could open an account with us, so I told him to bring him by and I could see what I could do to help. Needless to say, the son was approved on his own and our members were so happy beyond words. Knowing we can help our members puts a smile on my face!
Years in San Antonio
I was born and raised in San Antonio.
Spouse, kids, pets
Married for 10 years, 3 children (2 girls & 1 boy), and a 4 year old pug.
If you could have lunch with anyone in the world, who would it be?
My late grandmother. She was my everything. If I could have one more day with her, I would cherish every second.
What is your favorite spot in San Antonio outside the office?
Spurs games, when in season
What do you like to do most in your spare time?
Spending time with my family and making lasting memories.
