Retiring early from a career in banking has opened ever-evolving ministry opportunities for Elaine. Having spent years juggling family, faith, service, and career, Elaine now has time to mentor her daughters and other young women, share God’s love with toddlers at Watermark Fort Worth, and as a WW Wellness Coach encourage people to develop healthy habits and embrace their value. Elaine is currently enrolled in Watermark’s External Focus workshop and hopes to establish a faith-based community garden.

Elaine’s banking career centered on commercial lending, credit administration, marketing and innovation at several banks in the Midwest, South and Mid-Atlantic. Elaine held offices in many professional organizations including Risk Management Association, Equipment Leasing & Finance Association, and Financial Women International.

Elaine and her husband Roger enjoy traveling and hanging out with their adult children, John & Shannon in Fort Worth and Annie and Rob in Lincoln, Nebraska.
