kforbush@wpcu.coop

I have been a Loan Officer for over 26 years of which 22 years of it was as a small business owner, so I understand the struggles as well as the rewards of being a small business owner. After 22 years I sold my business in July 2018 and started working with Wright-Patt Credit Union in November. Wright-Patt is a not for profit company and Ohio’s largest credit union, and in the past decade has given over 65 million dollars in profits to their members. I was offered positions with many organizations and chose Wright-Patt for many reasons. A few of those reasons include that we are so like-minded when it comes to customer service and they also pride themselves on their flexibility and amazing product offerings. In addition to residential home lending, we also have an incredible commercial team that focuses on the needs of business owners. Let’s have a conversation.

I have since started working in combining my education, experience and passion into helping people obtain the relief they need in a more natural, holistic way through healthy alternative measures.  Most of my experience has been in Western medicine and pharmaceutical measures I have found people benefiting from other holistic wellness measures such as  CBD Oils and other CBD products. It is my goal to educate the community on the benefits of CBD oil and Hemp products and dismiss the misconceptions and stigma the CBD connotation plus to help people find the best fit for them because not all CBD oils are the same and cheaper is not always better.  Most importantly that people find the holistic, wellness regimen that works best for them!  Educate people to know what they are spending their money on and getting the best CBD product(s) to fit their individual needs.
