“We can educate members on ways to save, which might include going over how much they make and seeing what kind of budget would best suit their needs and personality. We can even run a soft credit report and go over their debt-to-income ratio; provide tips on how scores can be improved or best practices for paying off debt. We work to understand the member and create a structured, personal plan that will hopefully be effective for their lives and strengthen their financial wellness.”

My name is Melissa but known by my coworkers and members as Missy. I live in Nanticoke with my two kids, two dogs, and husband, Hank. I am the Branch Manager of the Main Office but also serve as the Branch Coordinator of our team and help to oversee all of our locations. I have been with Cross Valley since 2014. I love being a financial counselor because I enjoy being able to guide our members through their financial journey and help them find new ways to reach their goals even when times are tough.

Sarah Mullery WealthWise Team | Wilkes-Barre

I grew up in Lake Ariel and currently reside in Swoyersville. I have been with Cross Valley for 6 years now, in the lending department the entire time. I love when I am able to help a member get a loan such as buying their first car or getting out of credit card debt. Becoming a certified counselor has given me the tools I need to be able to go above just getting members funds when they need it and actually help them reduce stress in their life with all aspects of their finances and it is something they can use forever not just the term of the loan.

Understanding the scorecard:

What’s the magic number to aim for with your credit score? The highest you can get is 850 but the average person has a credit score between 685 and 714 (based on age).

Paying bills on time, maintaining a low credit card balance and diverse credit types all positively impact your credit score. On top of that, avoiding late payments and managing debt responsibly also contribute to a healthy credit profile. Want to learn more?
