John A

Hi, I’m John and I work in the I.S. Operations area at CEFCU. I’ve been with the credit union since 2012. My wife and I married in 1989 and have 7 wonderful children ranging in age from 14 to 27, and we have 5 grandchildren. In my free time, I enjoy reading a variety of books and spending time with my family. Here at CEFCU, I’m a member and officer at C.U. @ Yappyhour, CEFCU’s Toastmasters Club, which mentors about how to improve public speaking and leadership skills in a creative, friendly, and fun environment. Another favorite past-time is writing. Creativity extends beyond the mind as I enjoy working with my hands creating art, and working around our 100+ year old house. One project on our 1895 Victorian brick home, included many hours spent replacing a brick sidewalk using a complicated Herringbone pattern and putting in a 25’ by 40’ brick driveway! I look forward to this new adventure of blogging and getting to know more people here at CEFCU and the Peoria community.
