Kathy Brock
Kathy  Brock I've been an employee at Genesis for 41+ years. I'm a project manager in the IT department - a job that is challenging but rewarding at the same time. I've been a member of the credit union since starting my employment at Bethesda in 1981. I served on the BHZ Credit Union loan committee for > 10 years before being elected to the GECU Board of Directors in 2005. I firmly believe that personal financial wellness is one of the single most important contributors to overall individual happiness. Financial stability IS within reach if you're willing to apply some very basic principles. I can bring value to our credit union membership as a board member by educating and supporting our members as they seek to find their best possible physical and financial health.
