January Anniversaries

Wauna Credit Union has been serving members of the towns and cities surrounding the Columbia River for 52 years. Our January Anniversaries helped us start the year with a bang. We’re continuing to grow (if you want to join us check out our careers page). 

Pam Weller – 15 years

What is your current position?
My position is to oversee the growth and operations of the branches and WCU’s commercial loan department to ensure the needs of all of our members are being met. We understand that our area is special, and so are the needs and circumstances of the people who live here. On the branch side I oversee the employee growth for the Area Managers who have direct responsibility to the branch employees and the day to day operation of the branches, and with the commercial team I work to ensure the business lending needs of our members are being met, including directing commercial loan operations, underwriting and annual reviews.

What is something that working at WCU has taught you?
Working at Wanua Credit Union has been a great opportunity to learn management and leadership skills over the last 15 years. Working with and training new employees has been a very rewarding part of my position with WCU. There have been many opportunities to learn about all areas of the financial industry.

If you could choose one new hobby what would it be?
If I had a choice of a new hobby it would probably be to travel with a goal to visit every National Park in the United State.

Star Wars is an important part of life at Wauna Credit Union

Serena Schlosser – 4 years

What is your current position?
I am the Manager of the Lending Admin department, based out of Astoria. I get to work with all aspects of consumer loans (auto loans, credit cards, and unsecured loans). My department audits, processes, and decisions these loans. We also assist our Member Consultants in providing these products to our owner-members to build their financial well-being.

What is something that working at WCU has taught you?
Working at Wauna has taught me that the most obvious solution to a situation isn’t always the best one. Taking the time to dig deeper and really understand our members is very important in uncovering the best options that our credit union can offer to serve them.

If you could choose one new hobby what would it be?
If I could choose a new hobby it would be to restore old buildings in order to give them new purpose. I really enjoy the sense of place a building with a bit of history imparts on a community.

Serena loves visiting area landmarks
