April Green serves as Branch Vice President of VyStar’s Wildwood branch.

April recently moved to Sumter County and has made the area her home. She says, “As the daughter of a career Navy man, I grew up around VyStar, which was Jax Navy Federal Credit Union at the time. I have fond memories of going into a VyStar branch as a child to make deposits and learning the importance of saving. It was exciting to be a member then, and it is just as exciting for me now to help introduce VyStar to Sumter County and The Villages community.”
