Shannen Cromartie is a woman who sets goals for herself.
She believes that hard work can take you places, and she never considers doing anything but her best.
So, when Shannen felt stuck in an old job, she did what she always does: Set her sights on something bigger.
“I felt like I was passed over when it came to promotions at my old job,” Shannen says. “I wanted to be somewhere where I felt valued.”
In July 2018, she was hired at what was then York Traditions Bank. She started as a construction mortgage coordinator and put in the same hard work she did in her previous career roles.
This time, she didn’t have to seek out opportunities to grow — they were offered to her.
Today, Shannen is a Mortgage and Consumer Loan Team Leader at Traditions Bank.
“I thought this job was too good to be true,” she says. “Everyone has wanted to see me grow and succeed. It’s been a place where I can reach my full potential.”
