Building relationships and bridging gaps.
Michelle Settimi is the person you can rely on to help walk you through opening a new account. She admits, you might hear a corny banker joke in the process, too. Michelle especially enjoys helping youth open their first bank account and start their journey toward financial independence.
Michelle is multilingual (speaking English, Spanish, French and Italian) and loves learning about other cultures. She’s confident her language skills will help her reach a more diverse clientele and bridge language gaps. Michelle is hoping to add Portuguese to her repertoire, as she is planning a trip to Europe soon.
Outside of work, Michelle supports her community by volunteering her time. She serves as an activity director for White Pines Nursing Home, volunteers as a public speaking coach at Centennial High School, volunteers at the Alexandria House, and she organized and contributed to the Centennial food shelf. In her down time, you can find Michelle reading. She especially loves Ernest Hemingway – she’s read every one of his novels. Someday she’s like to visit his home in Montana.
