Your Passion

I am a life-long teacher at heart.

Your Story

In the early 1970's I moved to Denver and became a teacher in DPS. I usually had three jobs since I had four children to raise and get through college. I moonlighted teaching piano lessons as well as cake decorating. I am now retired and working as a tutor online and tutoring students in Denver Public Schools. There is nothing more rewarding than seeing the eyes of a student light up as they grasp the concept of learning something new. That has always kept me motivated and connected to students and education.

How Westerra Works for You

Through the years DPS/Westerra Credit Union has helped me through hard times and good times. Loans were taken out to pay for my children's education, remodeling, buying new or used cars, paying medical bills and even financing trips. In the 80's my now grown children became members and the tradition has continued to this day. We have relied on Westerra knowing that we will get the best interest rates and personal financial support when needed. Through the years I have even become friends with the people who work at the credit union and they know me by my first name. Forty years is a long time to trust the same financial institution with your money matters. There is none other for my family!
