From the simplest of tasks, to credit counseling or the complexities of purchasing a new home, Access team members are here to work for and with our membership. Our primary goal is to deliver integrity and trust with a positive attitude to everyone we come into contact with daily.

Alison Mullican

Brad Dewey, EVP/Chief Financial Officer, with All Star Winner Alison Mullican, Sr. Accountant
When you walk into Access Community Credit Union you see familiar people and faces. But, truth is, those people are only a part of our success as a credit union. Our back office also has many stars. We refer to them as our hidden treasures. One of them is Alison Mullican, Senior Accountant. Alison has only been with Access for a short time, yet she has made a big impact. She came to Access eager to work and has quickly become an important asset to the team. Things other employees say about Alison are; she is always so friendly and helpful, no matter what the task and she is a team player. Because she works in the back office, not many people have the opportunity to interact with her. But, when given the chance, everyone is pleased to work with her. We are excited to have Alison on our team and are proud to name her the first quarter Access All Star. Congratulations Alison!

Breanna Long

(L-R) Vanessa Rodriquez, Member Service/Service Center Member, All Star Winner Breanna Long, Service Center Team Lead, and John Hays, President & CEO.
Access Community Credit Union has roots that stretch back almost 65 years. That’s a long time to be a part of a community. Many factors contribute to this long lasting success. One of those is the “secret sauce” you will often hear spoken within our walls. We like to think our secret sauce is our outstanding staff. It’s the main ingredient that makes us stand out. That “secret sauce” is made from the hard work and dedication from employees like Breanna Long. Breanna started her career at Access as a Member Service Representative and has since taken over leading our internal call/service center as Service Center Team Leader. Her coworkers who nominated her had only the highest of praises for her. Breanna was described as patient, hardworking, knowledgeable, and ready to serve. Breanna has become the go-to person for questions from new employees. It isn’t uncommon to see her fill in whenever we might be short staffed. She is a true team player. She leads her team and sets an example for the rest of the credit union. She is the perfect example of the Access Credit Union “secret sauce.” We are fortunate to have her on our team and that’s why she is our 4th Quarter Access All Star.

Not only is Ashlee a member favorite, her coworkers are fond of her as well. Her coworkers have said that she is a joy to work with because of her ability to connect with anyone anywhere.

Lindsey Barclay

The credit union movement is all about member centered focus. It is a mentality that cannot be taught. You either have a servant’s heart or you don’t. Lucky for us and our membership, Lindsey Barclay has that member centered focus and servant’s heart. Lindsey is our senior loan officer and you can bet if you call her for any type of loan, she is going to take care of you. She has a positive and upbeat attitude that members and coworkers appreciate. She isn’t afraid to tell a dealership that they aren’t giving our members a good deal. Her name strikes fear in the finance offices of dealerships all over the panhandle. You can rest easy knowing Lindsey is on your side and working for you. Her coworkers complimented her willingness to help whenever she is needed. She gives her undivided attention to her members. She is always encouraging and has played a vital role in building the loan department. She is beloved by the members she serves and people she works with. These are just a few of the many reasons Lindsey is our Access All Star.

Terri Van Doran

Around the credit union there are certain people who become your “go-to” for answers and special tasks. That person, despite being extremely busy will stop in their tracks to help you out. If you have been a member of Access CCU for longer than about 4 minutes, you know this person is Terri Van Doren. Terri has been with the credit union for 36 years and in that time has become well versed in things Access. She can be found answering questions about loans, marketing, new accounts, payments, teller transactions and just about anything that comes up. Her coworkers love her. It isn’t uncommon to walk by her office and see several people huddled around her and her computer, while she takes time to teach. Terri is a giving coworker who always makes the membership her first priority. Terri has a joyful personality that attracts people to her. Terri is an All Star both at work and at home, we are grateful to have her on our team. Congratulations Terri.

Cindy Persefield

At Access CCU during our 64 years of business we have had the opportunity to work with a wide variety of people. 17 years ago a young lady came to work for Access CCU and forever set a standard for kindness and dedication. Cindy Persefield is that kind and dedicated employee, and deservedly so, the 4th quarter Access All Star. Cindy is easily one of the most loved members of the Access CCU staff, you can ask anyone. When asked to describe Cindy and why she was chosen, her coworkers and friends described her as sweet and generous, with a smile that never stops. You can pop into Cindy’s office and she will be sitting there eager to help coworker or member with whatever task they may have. She is knowledgeable and always willing to help. Cindy goes above and beyond for her peers and the members. Her personality and character have a positive energy that radiate throughout the credit union. We appreciate Cindy and all that she does to serve our members. There is no denying that our dear Cindy, is definitely an Access All Star.
