The amount of behind-the-scenes work that Stacy does is astounding. Her tireless dedication to keeping the bank in complete compliance is incredible to watch.

Her favorite mantra is “Don’t ask a question you can’t handle the answer to,” because she most definitely will find you an answer. Stacy truly cares about Bank Forward and shows it everyday by working efficiently and diligently with no excuses. I am proud to have her as a colleague on our Bank Forward team.
