Western Healthcare FCU in CU Digest
After being raised on a steady diet of how credit unions are “different” by design, Diana Michael’s career path was inevitable. Now the CEO of Western Healthcare FCU enjoys sharing her passion of credit unions with others—both inside and outside the movement.
Her insight for future credit union leaders is contagious as well. You have to “lead by living the vision, because others will look to you to display that leadership,” Michaels said. “Have the desire and passion to help people succeed, and have the ability to understand that happy team members make happy credit union members.”
Michaels and Western Healthcare FCU Board Chairman Cheryl Jarman are the latest credit union leaders spotlighted within the Leader 2 Leader column in the April/May edition of Credit Union Digest—a relevant resource for professionals in the industry.
