Kick off for the Scranton school board last night at the trip house prior to going out to dinner. And she was telling you that she was just so she made a terror speech without coughing because he has a bad.

You know so yeah hopefully he'll be OK just yeah I am and breathe on me now thank you. Now I'm going to be of the minds says this'll just passed by the end of the day. I'm kind okay did we have finances Katie had a nice turnout is very I was absolutely. Shocked at the number. People that and a good hundred more than a hundred people there oh yeah and then and coming and going yes smiling what are you absolutely. So that's good for her good yeah that was great just I didn't really hear what she had to say because I couldn't hear what she may she was speaking about. The foundation of being and a hat and the importance of doing. Her kick off from the trip house of Scranton and the foundation that that it's the oldest house in Matt Bonner county and the junior league owns fits in the house and well it's actually on by the preservation of the trip and then what do I can't get all mixed up but. The preservation for that trip Stanley homestead and there's a separate 501 C three but the junior league sold it to them. And the junior league of timeframe premise saying something slightly ruckus is not Gil Martin is listening now she's like no masses but. Junior league did salad they actually preserve and take care of it do what they have to do is aboard but there is some things to do there is some. You know back giving to the junior league if there's an issue whatever but the bottom line is. I'm not that is trained junior league trained as Katie is as I am as I think. Kathy rapper is and I and I will go out on the limb saying that I thinks I personally think that it. It is one of the best organizations. I have some female run organization international that I love believe I am better for it. I am and it's so Katie was saying that that. Her foundation from the three pillars and her life the junior league shook her mom and dad it to be standing there has come. In at this home that they found as any good beginning starts with a good foundation and what she was saying is that leads into the school board that. If a child every child deserves a best foundation making yet. From an educational standpoint to be whoever they wanna be and get to the system in a very good way. And she believes she can make some ads you know some of her good ways have learning. And expertise to the school board. And it was a very refreshing way to look at the way he education is and how a child is formed due to education. Of course to Scranton school district with two I always say as. My one of my Fave is because I was educated in the Scranton school does it go as you know proud graduate of west Scranton senior high school sells it. And 10 YouTube you're Scranton central so I mean that's it's it's it is now things PL has changed and there's always complaining there's always this but I think if he gets the right people and the rain makes EU will. I'm make good to bring your insight I don't Ali say change the just bring your insight and therefore because of that it does make a change because. You create change you need today that sound is not a quote from someone. See the change I'm just what isn't it is change you want in your life or whatever. Yeah foolish I don't remember. I am really lowered their Mother Teresa so another combination. Smothering Angelo but you know. But we instantly it's just sitting there. It was great it was good to hear she's young she's energetic and she does a good job and I personally just lover so that's how. Well it was an interesting too for you and I just see the progression of that and her speak yes as we've come with her as she was C started by going to that event that was sponsored by the League of Women Voters or was this something that was no no no mercy as strand it's a group of women who I am Steve curb its wife is part of Stephanie. And started it too. Like progressive women on the exact title right but after the election women who wanted to get together and either show how to beat part of the change which is eager to do back. The back work of an election or to actually run yourself and how other ways that they could support each other. Come. And go from there and Katie who yells yes from there should play that media analyst would mean a parent. Lee I'm very. Something clicks and all that and then she went from Madison to run trust us and I think that's greatest wish more. Women would do that more women would get involved in politics even if I'm in a local level like this is falls where everybody starts usually. I believe that women. Who are interested in wanting to make chains. Should consider either being in the front or behind the scenes great and something like this because it makes a difference did it really does. And I didn't it just thinking what we saw last night I was shocked at the number of people that were there are so many of them were not. Residents of the city of Scranton. But they were so. Reporting Katie yes well it's finally nice hearing that and I Imus got done more resident here of clerks were whenever already in North Adams zone anything township. I'm so yeah I mean it doesn't matter because you're influence can influence people you know who live in the city of grammar and or whatever which is why he do that. So many people try as to help with us so anyway sure was good steps.

Thank you for being here thank you having me I appreciate you coming and good and we must talk about a little bit about your background because I'm curious to know. How did you get into banking. When I was in college I went to Penn State aid. Hi I'm I had a part time bank teller at a competitors think that I want to. I run and life kind of took me a little bit away from Mac because I I have my accounting degrees and they did some accounting and you know life went on got married. Got divorced you know the challenge found myself at the plane in my life where where did I wanna go back to infidelity was there with open arms for me I was a customer before I worked there and they were nearly aced me. So almost ten years ago had. Decade of my life I got a job and I Abington brands now and kind of worked my way up through the ranks and and then there for the past ten years my life. How long after administering expansion. I felt for years. Close call for a so so are you native food Thailand do not I am not I'm an army brat sorry. I'm home. I was actually born in Fort Campbell Kentucky. I lived overseas for eight years of my life in Germany. We lived in new York New Jersey about my parents are natives from Dickson city and Blakely. Oh yeah that's how I know that she's always been home to them. And an idea to me how long did you live in Kentucky flag. I think it was a year and a half and then we return we and the Tennessee Kentucky border for about two years so I'm. Every three years week. Think contestant moves up. So how many opponents of there were you when you said we picked up for moves. Siblings idea I have one sibling mention my very best friend and those are smaller family mom dad me in my sister's house crave yeah. So did you learn to speak any other languages when you're. Hi Dan. Ali my money's my mother sent me to a German kindergarten so I don't know fairness but she pulled me out because she couldn't understand and we just had a great interest there is this past October we were blessed to be able to go back to Germany and Italy and both of us were amazed at how much we were remembered and ran really. So yes speak Italian ten hi I try anybody. It's very butchered it comes out from my high school friendship began and a right now. Just didn't say that that's my background is that I have a degree in secondary education with a major French. So what's totally irrelevant to what I do but the thing is that's what I learned it when I was teaching math. Is that children. Especially. Very young show Mike you talked about kindergarten. When you don't see the words. And you just listen and you understand what they mean it consists simply vying audio book called beyond illegal methods. You learn it's so well you speak like natives from the get go instead of the way we traditionally taught it is that you have a book and you look at the words she and you start americanize. The words. And that's how you speak and which is. Now the way it works so what you did when you went there as a child and this is the best way to learn and that's why you just setting came back. Came back I don't know amazed that it was like don't know if that means so I know if that's me and that's great he knows how many is really your. Three years the first time five years the second time and I my sister was actually born on the air around me and I'm. This year dual citizenship she does not she's still a US citizen but I think there's some kind of patio we she can never become president because she wasn't born. Yeah hi. I would I don't know if you heard the hotel. Yeah harness okay. Am so you tell us so what's going on time and finally there's some really cool things are gonna she's of the drinks is he and we just have rolled out this. Initiative which I think is outstanding I mean you know as a community bank we love to partner in dealing give back to our community and a lot of times I comes force and dollars. But a new initiative that we're doing is opening our doors after hours to. Community libraries. And nonprofits even business owners and small person selling Mary Kay Erie times. It kind of gives them exposure in children events around it used some of our client base but also to expose their customers said that we have. This voice in the community to give the exposure and set. If there's a need so for example we have a chiropractic doctor coming into one of our branch is given and hour and a half long recession on what it's all about. We can have a librarian come in with the children's group and you're reading there. I'm so there's a wonderful wonderful things happening so that is all free into the community. Whether your customer non customer of the bank doesn't matter really for non customers CNN makes sense its marketing upon. Lagos is he not counting yeah. So that kinda get some exposure and says to give our our business partners and our small business and nonprofit some places to go without having to foot the bill for it if they wanted to host in Havana's. Nice pairing and how how many time one how how often he doing it we're trying to do it once a quarter per brand so with eleven branches. Check and I have not yet and the different areas so we have a ton a ton of opportunities. Can't because if you've eleven in Europe and fourth quarters that's 44 iron in quick math than actually 44 iron and people who can speak. A year gem that's pretty good news so we had a and how we getting the people is it like a lottery system or just to say ask how how the people you're going to do that. Was going to do this this speaking. Right now it's very free form so Doug managers are. Business bankers have been asked to reach out to their business customers because it's new but word of mouth is OK you don't have to be a customer of the danger. I'm so because it's a new initiative we didn't they brainstorming session and came out west so one of the ideas I even thought as I have a lot of tired customers south. How to change a tire. And the hammer why don't I just doing free clinic on that and how our business customer kind of and like Max. Especially if you're a woman cosmos some men women deal but most don't know how to do it the united changing times. Anybody you do lint in my mind do you can't. My dad taught me when I was very. The hardest part for me is to get those damn well another. Because they've put them on the shows air cozy as a Minnesotan I ate support. Mike Garcia can't get them off I I don't know problems I don't like to do and I hate doing it but I've done it. Let the figure right that if I just played on the phone comfortable playing away and yeah I know but yeah there's a time Lee Anthony Quinn is very even. You may be a mom who's trying to it has some of a single mom marrying mom whose home and small children and tell us what what is that blue blue room where we're. Hopefully she can I'm NN host a party there are so she doesn't have to happen. We provide refreshments we provide whatever is necessary for at least had a wine and chocolate tasting for some of our customers. The coffee he's staying we have an attorney coming in to do freeze state will play and they love it so it's really really good. Community can I think that's wonderful and I society if you're gonna have to do more than once a quarter yeah I show that he might have you know I'm new at how what's it called. Just sat community brick ranch based events how can now convince his grief I can't just wonderful blue. Yeah so. Would you have one lined up for sure now. I do you know what I'm the next area we have a younger Shaq coming or not on March 23 at the green retrench. And she's gonna do age. Free Obama administration an entry and so we're gonna provide the other masks and lots of water and fruit tray there and we'll be their first two or three hours. I'm internally where marketing we're providing them external marketing materials to get to their customers or anybody who walks and who wants to try and sound that's what's happening nothing green Richard Branson as I mentioned we have. So willing to state planning on our financial center and we have the chiropractic doctor coming up better keystone industrial location so. There's a ton of different things going on in whatever peaks your interest you can go to. I don't think it's our office the same day not the same day now someday you can do anything you can go to any or all of yeah yeah they all in the evening are they different times today we try to keep it after branch traffic hours time depending on. This weekend yeah usually after five but we try to keep the midweek between 530 and 730 back. Yeah I just doesn't break out there customer. Action by him I think that Chris. Oh back and I was I was speaking to joy and our silly yesterday and she's coming in and around these crazy events mean. And I just thought it was a great idea it's she said there were doing it it's a new thing here than you and nobody's done it before bush. In this area that we know of correct. So the solo kinks to work out and I think what. We learn on the fly you down and apparently that's basically what she said that she says it's like it's a great idea they really everybody's really. Supportive of it and it sounds like it's really gonna take off the and I think you're probably gonna have more people screaming and they wanted to do it he'll have time to do it. Let's hope Franklin County entry like the community. For the coach Randy senator never could understand. I'm not good highlights them a great great idea and of course there's always good stuff I'm. And we talked to. Jill I'm. I don't know. All of the things that you're bank provides Wi fi service hours and giving you the time to get out. I'm do you really do not just to you know what. You you do what you say you're gonna do you don't just walk the walk Q what's the word what I say Cotter tough Gary Condit talked to walk the walk. Bottom line is that is what happens with fidelity because. I mean this is just one more thing that you're now doing for the community. That gives them the people the client as a person out there the customer and opportunity to showcase themselves with the help but that the bank that they. Banquet absolutely miles an I don't think with us that's still glad that in fact that god is yeah I think it's great PM. Especially by Q&A mansion where on each employee is a lot of volunteer service hours right they can go out. Whether it's a joint thing or whether it's I just wanna go help at the soup kitchen Monday our I wanna do something with dress for success are. I wanna go locked on to the humane society you know so I think that's part of the reason why has lived infidelity for so long is because you're not just. In dollars and cents EU actually gets to give back. My name and that's terrific that's that they believe it. Jill how can anybody who would like to get in touch with you regarding any of these things are banking in general. Well our website is always a great thanks so that's WWW. Bank acts eighteen nothing hammers him symbol fidelity dot com's home for our FaceBook page so the so if you just do a search for fidelity bank all the events are listed on there.

See man we're talking and having a lot to cabbie to about a bunch of different things because Kathy is in as a new podcast Dexter and we're thrilled to have our. And we've been to give linen I have personally been dealing with Kathy for a long long time. And we. What I used to be entities her brownies are the best things in the world capitalist today tell used to BM and they're cracked my. I thought I don't didn't admit a lot of it is and they didn't stared. They are again because my Celia I can no longer have not however. Really I ended just unbelievable can make any gluten free ones. Firm and she wouldn't do because of the sacred traveling seeing you gotta be careful now. How Canadian or how she was about anywhere. But can't see it really has been again we we talk about this cap because Europe we told you story a little bit last time about. How you were CPA CPA treat your trained in accounting got your CPA much like Jill and her Sarah accounting background so I am. All you number's called I'm still can't count yet right. But at this gas fit all the changes you may and I loved it was so important when you told everybody last time that you actually got fired from. The job that you thought was what you should be doing since she went to school to be an account you got that went through all the action testing to be a CPA in there you are. And so I think that's really neat for people to know that we years to come I think when you here I got I got fired it's like you think it was the worst thing in the world and really. What it is is his ways that you end up being. If it doesn't kill you makes you stronger sense right. You what you went through all this to get to what your passion is a weary are today but along the way cafe which you would want to talk about because again not not just bad. But your health the health issues that you had to deal with. As well as raising a child and starting a business going to all these.

I'm Kathy is once again donating the dessert and doing a cake for us for that. And the reason Kathy has contributed in has done this for a lot of years is because of her. Phone experience with breast cancer and where she's come from and and I again kept publicly Kathy thank you for helping us because this as you know of so many people step up because. Most people from our doing it because they know someone in their life who is affected or has had dealt with I breast cancer and I say people all the time I do because women have breast cancer and there it's and living longer now and the neat things are happening for the better. I it has meant everything but it's a good thanks Kathy here. And she's gonna talk a little bit about that so go and get it because it's amazing how well what event. Well as far as being fired it was that it was so freeing yeah. I. Know is going to be a news story liberating yeah. They really Verizon now and I drive by that place I say thank you get a AF. It was the best thing that could've happened another stock. And problem. Knowingly hire me like I was. Saying the last I know it would hire me for about a year so. But as far as my house I mean it's it's really it's such a huge impact. On my life. In 97. I was first diagnosed with thyroid cancer and then again in 1999. So my last treatment for very cancer was in January of 2000. And then as far as though the komen events. I was diagnosed phenom of march of 2010 and some coming up on the seven year anniversary. Was breast cancer have bilateral mastectomy with reconstruction. And I actually had the reconstruction done twice I've had six perceived stress for breast cancer. Plan that I'm healthy and I'm so fortunate. It's so important to be stage one or zero and be treated very early on and that's that's key to the success of. But those decisions had to makeshift. And I know they're changing the way they do things now my but the decisions are. Major freeway means but I guess if that's what you're faced with Kathy this thing is it. I just I give written do whatever I have to do is I guess I wanna live and I want to survive Grassley Dell and there was a no brainer type I didn't even have. Just think twice about it when the doctor said you have to have a bilateral mastectomies are okay yet he can't get away yeah. And the sooner the better I did get a second opinion of song carrying fake concurred with the local people so I I had some locally. Two out because. So Kettering came up with the same diagnosis saying right. Same option in the same course of about treatment. And I wanted to make it easier for my family because I knew what was involved so. Typical mother has taught us right thinking what's do what's best for my family how to do what I got to do that mom yet. Good is the fear there about Kathy I know years it was early diagnosis which as you said thank god clinch its debt fears so present at. I eat in new four as a mom. You would you just wanna fight because here the heat death comes out and you are just a little I'm I'm I can't pass an English Mae and Caroline was. Fourteen my daughter was fourteen when I was diagnosed with breast cancer and she's now a senior in college. Let me tell you when I looked in her eyes and I saw the fear me. I just gave me so much energy to fight and do what ever the doctor said do it ever was necessary. To get daughter. And all of this you herbs you're dealing with theory here in new business right I have.

Cancer diagnosis it albeit thyroid did you say was did they know if there's any correlation between. The children can count it's very interesting because Sloan Kettering does a lot of Haitian symposiums and that question always comes up because these statistics. The number of people who. I diagnosed with breast cancer are our third cancer or treat different sorry cancer and then go on to develop. Breast cancer is just statistically. Significant while. And no one will give you an answer as to why our her own all I would say I wouldn't you. They're just so many explanations one of the explanations is. He radioactive iodine that's given ground floor treatment Osiris cancer that's that was one explanation not a doctor gave me. Among its many many others I have the testing done my breast cancer was not genetic. Okay so I under rule that out. And at this point nobody really knows. I just wondered if they. Can ever said that because it's stats statistically tied and there's got to be something. Something mayor. But it was so you went through all this she went through days this thyroid as she said. Thyroid is a long time and I'll raise her seventeenth 2002 she said 2200.
