Latricia Powell - Michigan is in dire need of qualified individuals who genuinely represent the underprivileged and under-sourced populations, especially Saginaw, MI. Rest assured, Latricia Powell has the credentials and experience to go above and beyond on the behalf of the Family First Credit Union. Equally, Latricia has been in the Customer Service sector for well over 23 years, now. That said, Latricia’s passion lies in philanthropic work which derives from her three self-owned businesses in Saginaw, MI, which include, Orion and Company, LA Powell & Associates, L.C. and GodIs (Non-Profit). Given her extensive educational background; obtaining a Bachelor of Science degree from Central Michigan University in 2019 and obtaining her Master’s of Business Administration degree in 2021. Needless to say, Latricia is a lifelong learner and is honored to be considered to serve FFCU in this journey. In many respects, Latricia is a ‘double-minority’, therefore, she can emphasize with diversity while sustaining impartiality and objectivity. As you can see, Latricia is best suited for this position with the fact that she will always give nothing less than her best. To conclude, this pillar of the Saginaw community has mentored many individuals (viz. children, teens, adults, etc.), and this opportunity is another altruistic way for her to give back to her birthplace.
