Featured Member:  Greta Messarra Woodward

Hello! I am passionate about helping people put their finanical puzzles together, and get the opportunity to do this daily as the Financial Advisor for all four Bryan/College Station locations for Aggieland Credit Union. I am very active in the community and honored to sit on the Board for the Sexual Assault Resource Center (SARC), and am the Chair for the Bryan/College Station Walk to End Alzheimer’s. 

I have been an active member of ABWA since 2007 where I have developed and shared my business skills, as well as built life-long friendships.  In my spare time I enjoy crafting and gardening, as well as spending time time my furry family of dogs, cats, and chickens!
