Eddie is the Collections Manager and a Certified Financial Counselor at Simplicity Credit Union for the past 5 years. He believes that financial situations are fixable and it is his job to help members understand how to get there. With over 15 years in collections he has learned that people don’t want to be behind in their payments and he wants them to know they can make changes to improve their financial well-being.  “In today’s world, money can be one of the scariest monsters out there. We want to help arm you with tools and support so you can conquer that fear and take control of your financial life."
