Let us introduce you to one of our Board Members, Karissa Little! This is Karissa’s first year with SYL, and we are so excited to have her as part of our committee for the next three years. Karissa is with Diamond North Credit Union in Carrot River and is a Wealth Specialist. Let’s find out a bit more about Karissa!

Tell us about you and your Credit Union journey. How did you get to where you are now?

I have been with Diamond North Credit Union for almost two years. I am a Wealth Specialist and Mutual Funds licensed. I was previously a independently licensed investment and insurance advisor for five years and changed roles to work in pharmacy for five years. I then decided to quit my job, go back to university and obtain a Bachelor in Business Administration degree with a finance major.

Why did you join SYL?

I joined SYL because of the committee members and credit union employees I met at retreat. I wanted to expand my comfort zone and develop my leadership skills while helping others do the same.

What are you most proud of so far in your SYL journey?

I’m most proud of applying for and being accepted to be on the committee. I take pride in my work, and I’m excited for what we will do in the next three years.
