Kelly Jonak, Branch Manager of our Ord branch has been banking over eight years and views it as almost her “family business”. Kelly’s mom has been in banking for over thirty years and that’s what inspired her to get into the industry. Kelly said she’s “always looked up to her mom and wanted to follow in her footsteps” and that’s what brought her to BankFirst.
In her 8+ years in banking, she’s already seen a lot of changes in the industry. From handwriting receipts and typing up documents on a typewriter to having everything at her fingertips with her computer. And she expects the industry to continue to move forward on the technological front as more and more banking needs can be met online. She says it’s an “exciting time for the industry”.
Originally from a family farm in Scotia, she now lives with her husband and two kids in North Loup. She “loves her small town where everyone knows everyone and it’s just a great place to raise a family”. She says she’s “blessed to be able to live in a wonderful community and she’s very proud to be a part of the BankFirst family”.
