Our November 2021 Employee Spotlight features Detra Armstrong. “Detra has been with Tech for over 15 years! Detra’s knowledge and the comfort level our members feel with her make her an invaluable part of our team! Members come back and refer their friends and family to Detra because they know their expectations will be exceeded. She always follows up and follows through to make sure our members are taken care of! Additionally, Detra is a big help to newer employees as they are learning the ropes. She is our branch, “party planner”, and looks for ways for us to all come together outside of work. Detra is a diligent, dependable employee and an all-around wonderful person. I am so grateful to have her on our team here!” – Kate Horst, Merrillville Branch Manager
We asked Detra some questions to learn a little bit more about her experience here and what she likes to do in her free time.
1) What do you like about your role at Tech CU?
I like that I have the opportunity to build relationships with the members while being there to help with their financial needs to the best of my ability.
2) What do you like to do when you’re not working?
When I am not working I enjoy serving the community at the Food Pantry at my church weekly and spending time with my 3-year-old niece who keeps me young.
3) What is one thing on your “bucket list”
I really do not have a bucket list but one thing I would like to do is skydive.
4) What is your favorite holiday?
My favorite holiday would be Christmas during this time of year people are a little kinder to one another and you can feel the shift in the atmosphere change in most places to a warmer and inviting place.
5) What about becoming an adult caught you completely off guard?
That paying bills never end.
