Keys Federal Credit Union recently recognized Julie Young for 15 years of dedication and service to our members. Young began her career at Keys FCU in 2000 as a member service representative. She was promoted to branch manager in 2007. Then in 2011 Young decided to become a charter boat captain and spend part of her work life on the water. At that time, she began working as a part-time teller and member service representative and has never looked back.

Keys Federal Credit Union also recently promoted Gisselle Garcia to member service representative in the local call center. Garcia began her career as a teller.

She was born in Cuba and immigrated to upstate New York with her family when she was 5. Garcia visited her grandmother in Key West every year and finally moved here with her family in 2010.
