Confessions of a Credit Counselor, Lynsey's Story

What do you do at AFS and how long have you been here?

I have worked at AFS for 15 years and I work in our Client and Creditor Services departments.

What do you like most about your job?

I love that I get to help people with one of the most stressful things in life (money/debt/finances) and give them peace of mind. Hearing the relief in a person’s voice is the most rewarding feeling.

The best financial advice I ever received:

Start a retirement fund and a savings account.

One piece of advice you’d like to give people:

There is always light at the end of the tunnel. Don’t give up.

When I am not at work I like to:

I had a baby in November 2016. Spending time with him is the highlight of my life, outside of work. I also have two great Danes that love to play fetch and rough house. Our family enjoys camping & hiking when the weather permits.

A quirky fact about me:

I like to talk to myself while I am working on clients accounts. :)
