What drew you to a career at FCI?
The pace and the people. I have been fortunate in my career to have worked for amazing companies with great leadership, including eight years as director of information security at Carle Foundation Hospital and Health Alliance Medical Plans in Champaign and as a senior information security analyst and subject matter expert for two years at Amdocs in Champaign.
Farm Credit Illinois has a reputation for being a family-first employer, which speaks to me. While I enjoy my work and what I do, it does not define who I am.
