The Family Credit Union welcomes Financial Wellness Coordinator

Credit union hires Abigail Eaton to lead credit counselor program for members

DAVENPORT, IA (February 27, 2024) — The Family Credit Union (TFCU), a not-for-profit financial cooperative headquartered in the Quad Cities, has welcomed Abigail Eaton as its new Financial Wellness Coordinator.

Eaton brings more than seven years of financial experience to the credit union. In this role, Eaton will be responsible for promoting financial wellness to the communities the credit union serves and will oversee financial education activities through classes, presentations and individual sessions to help members reach their goals.

She will also be the on-site coordinator for the credit union’s new credit counseling program, Credit Climber. The Family partnered with Credit Mountain earlier this year to offer a digital credit counseling service that provides credit report analyses, personalized action plans, credit monitoring and educational resources to help members achieve positive financial outcomes.

“In this role, I can delve into members’ credit and finances, seek tailored solutions to enhance their present situations and reach their goals,” Eaton said. “Continuing my work in this industry allows me to make a difference in the financial lives of the members we serve.”

Eaton is no stranger to the credit union industry. Prior to The Family, Eaton worked as a teller, account officer and then an assistant branch manager at Ascentra Credit Union. In that role, she processed and managed various loan applications and assisted the credit union with financial education seminars at Black Hawk College in Moline, Illinois. Eaton also served as a financial coach for an Illinois credit union.

“As a thoughtful and passionate leader in the credit union movement, Abby will bring incredible support and leadership to TFCU,” said Kris Skiles, VP of Marketing for The Family Credit Union. “Her background and passion to enhance financial literacy for Iowans will help us continue to make a positive impact on the financial lives of our members.”

Eaton received her CCUFC designation in 2022.
