“It’s hard to believe I began my career with FSB almost 25 years ago,” commented Renee Gilpatric, Senior Underwriter and Residential Processing Officer.  “During my adolescent years, I often heard about how the bank was a strong supporter of the community.  My family also did business with the bank; therefore, I felt it would be a great place to start my career.”

Next, Havey joined FSB in 1998 as a part-time receptionist, then transitioned into a full-time role.  Later she moved into loan processing and loan servicing.  In her role, she will continue to perform multiple loan processing functions to include ensuring the integrity and accuracy of loan documents, insurance monitoring, loan set up, loan maintenance, and quality control.  She is a past board member of the Parent’s Association at Tilton School and Saint Paul’s CYO Program.  A resident of Franklin, Havey enjoys camping and spending time with her family.
