Darrell McVeaCommunity Financial Educator
Hi! My name is Darrell McVea, and I am the Community Financial Educator with Peninsula Credit Union of Shelton. I’ve been married to the woman of my dreams for 31 years. She has gifted me 3 children, who between them, have gifted me with 5 grandchildren, all who live within 15 miles of our home. I love fishing, travelling, and taking long walks with my family.
My work with Peninsula Credit Union provides Financial Education without cost to the communities we serve. I am passionate about being able to do this and look forward to helping you achieve your financial dreams. A good understanding of your finances can help make your dreams come true and break the cycle of poverty. Early in life, I wish I had a mentor who would have educated me on money matters. I found that mentor in the woman I married.
Let me help you achieve financial fitness, whether you are dreaming of a college education, that new car, or a first home. Give me a call. My priority is you and helping make your financial dreams come true.
