Vice President/Branch Manager
Farmers & Merchants Bank of Long Beach
Val was an incredible asset to me as Executive Director during my time serving on the board for Power 4 Youth. I was new to board service and she made sure I was given the direction, education and tools to be an effective board member. We saw great strides in the growth of the organization under her direction in terms of program and funding. I also experienced a great deal of personal development myself as I started as a brand new board member and eventually became board president for two years. Val is organized, personable and professional.
