Digital Banking Specialist, Sam Walker, is celebrating her 5-year work anniversary at Saco & Biddeford Savings this month!
“Before I stumbled upon a job opening at SBSI, I resigned from my teller position at a local credit union. I went back to working as a waitress, and although secure, the job lacked the schedule flexibility I needed to balance my home life.
It wasn't long before I yearned for the bank environment once again and began seeking bank jobs. My prospects brightened when a branch manager reached out to my father to ask if I was on the lookout for a job. Five years ago, I joined SBSI and have never looked back since.
Over time, I've held different positions within SBSI. I started off working as a Customer Service associate at our Saco Main Street branch. Later, I was offered an opportunity to work as a Customer Relationship Associate.
During that time, I dove into the intricacies of account structure in Deposit Support which taught me a great deal about banking operations.
The experience allowed me to discover my passion for operations work, prompting me to jump at the chance to become a Digital Banking Specialist when the opportunity presented itself in October of 2019. The job is both thrilling and challenging as it allows me to apply my critical thinking skills to real-world situations.
SBSI holds a special place in my heart because family always comes first here. The values of the business align well with mine, making it an ideal place to work.
During my free time, I spend quality time with my family. Raising two small children takes up most of our time but we love to soak up the sun outdoors during summer. I enjoy teaching my kids how to tend to plants in our garden as it fosters their appreciation for nature.
Whenever I get some alone time, I go for walks near the Saco Heath Preserve, my favorite spot. I also enjoy snuggling up with my dogs, Bruce and Natasha, while indulging in some reality TV.”
Join us in congratulating Sam on this life milestone! We are thrilled to have her as part of our team and immensely grateful for all the hard work that she has put in over the years.
