Maria Nichols

“Just like people, our member financial institutions come in all shapes, sizes, and perspectives. My job allows me to appreciate these differences, notice their nuances, and how they have changed from one year to the next. This allows me to recommend unique combinations of products and services to meet their specific asset-liability needs.”
