Maggie Davis: Compliance Specialist

Prior to joining the Aux Team, Maggie worked for Navy Federal Credit Union (NFCU) as a Universal Member Service Representative. She has experience as a Mortgage Loan Originator, Business Specialist, and IRA/Trust Specialist. Prior to NFCU, she worked for a local credit union in Santa Cruz, California.

Credit unions are special to Maggie because of the way members are viewed: they are not just another account number. She feels extremely fortunate that she is able to be an asset to credit unions so they can continue to put member service at the forefront.

While Maggie’s degrees are in Psychology, Compliance has always been a field that she has sought out; she finds the compliance arena interesting and critical to the credit industry. It is easy to see that she has a great passion for what she does.
