Alfonso has a strong reputation in promoting BrightStar Credit Union’s philosophy of bright service, where each member is valued, and has grown an appreciation for the contribution a credit union adds to communities.

Prior to joining BrightStar, Alfonso advanced her credit union career by obtaining a Compliance Officer Certification from Miami Dade College’s Center for Financial Training.
