"My money works for me." From kids to graduation... and starting her own
business... to becoming a motivational speaker:
Changing needs have made Consumers the perfect fit
for Theresa and her family.
Member Theresa R. started her Home Health Care
business about ten years ago. She’s also a registered
nurse, motivational speaker, and busy mom of four.
"I’ve had some rough patches," she admits, "but
Consumers has always had my back financially."
And while many people use the drive thru to save time,
Theresa wouldn’t dream of it. She prefers to come in
and see her friends... her family... at Consumers.
When Theresa first walked through the doors of the West Main Office in 2002, she was just starting
her business. "I didn’t get the loan at the time, but I did get solid financial advice."
After working with Consumers, the loans came, and so did a long–term relationship built on mutual
trust. Today, Theresa is an industrious businesswoman with a thriving home health care business,
serving mainly elderly clients.
She also believes Consumers prepared her for the recent recession and feels lucky she wasn’t one of
the ones running for cover; adding, "It’s not just a bank where you put your money—you get advice
on how to have your money work for you."
All her personal and business banking needs are met through Consumers—checking, CDs, car loans,
business loans, her mortgage, and even the kids’ CDs. Today, her 18–year old son is away at college
and buying a duplex. He’s made investments. He’s light years ahead of others his age.
"He started saving with a $5 kids’ account and eventually worked up to a $100 youth CD," she says.
"Consumers taught him about banking." Now, Theresa is introducing her youngest child (age 3) to
the benefits of banking at Consumers. The family tradition continues.
"If you don’t bank at Consumers, I’m sorry, you’re truly missing out."
