Lindsey Bamba  |  Secretary

I was born in Olympia and have lived in Thurston County my whole life. I graduated from North Thurston High School and South Puget Sound Community College. The Pacific Northwest has all my favorite activities, from swimming to camping to snow skiing, I couldn’t imagine living and working anywhere else. One of the best things about our community is all of the opportunities to support our local non-profits.  I enjoy volunteering for various organizations, such as Child Care Action Council, Morningside, and American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life. I began my career in banking in 2003 at Olympia Federal Savings and have held every position from Customer Service Representative to Lending Branch Manager. I really enjoy working with people and I am excited and honored to be a part of such a great organization such as CCAC.
