This quarter we are kicking things off with our Chamber treasurer, Christina (Tina) Palermo. Tina has been a member of the New Oxford Chamber board since 2018 and has also served as the organization’s treasurer for four years. She works for M&T Bank and is the branch manager at the Dart Drive location in Hanover.
Q: What is your favorite part of your job at M&T Bank?
A: What I love best about my job are the relationships I make with my clients and coworkers. It is very rewarding to be able to make a difference in people’s lives.
Q: Why did you decide to get involved with the New Oxford Area Chamber of Commerce?
A: When I was 16, I came to New Oxford to antique and absolutely fell on love with the town. I joined the Chamber to be part of the town’s future. I love the team of board members we have. Everyone pitches in and helps get the job done. I feel that is because we all feel something special for this town.
Q: Aside from necessities, what could you not go a day without?
Anyone who knows me would tell you I am an animal lover and that the faces of cats and dogs are my stress reliever and put a smile on my face...that and Diet Coke.
Q: What’s the top destination on your must-visit list?
A: On my bucket list, which grows everyday, is to one day visit Sicily where my grandfather immigrated from.
We appreciate Tina being our first interviewee for “Getting to Know” and look forward to introducing our other board members in future issues of “The Circle.”
Work life balance. It’s something we hear all the time, yet so many of us struggle to achieve it. Kathi Fuhrman, owner of Fuhrman Creative, knows the feeling of trying to find that balance all too well.
