The Little Falls Chamber of Commerce named Caroline Wadman the Employee of the Month for March. Wadman is employed with US Bank at the Coborn’s Superstore location.
Wadman has been with US Bank for two and a half years and her duties include both banking and teller functions.
“As a teller, I cash checks, deposit money and help with withdrawals,” said Wadman. “As a banker, I open accounts, issue credit cards, give loans and issue CDs. I get to be part of both worlds.”
What Wadman likes best about her job is the interaction with her customers.
“When my boyfriend, Karl Sabrowsky, and I moved here in 2010, we didn’t know anyone. My job has helped us meet others and be part of the community,” she said.
Wadman grew up in the Annandale area, on Clearwater Lake. One of her favorite pastimes is summer fishing.
“I don’t like ice fishing, it’s too cold,” she said. “Karl and I purchased a boat last summer, so we will be getting out to more lakes this year.”
Wadman doesn’t have much time for herself. She works full-time at the bank and takes online classes, full-time, at Mayville State University in North Dakota. She is a junior and plans to graduate with a business administration degree including an emphasis in management and marketing.
“I plan on graduating in December 2015,” she said.
When she does have some time to kill, she loves to shop, play cards and spend time with friends and family.
Jammi Strunk, Wadman’s supervisor, said, “Caroline takes customer service to a new level. She not only has our customers’ best interest at heart, she truly believes in the creation of a relationship and delivers a fantastic experience with every customer every day. I am so proud to have Caroline as part of our US Bank family and share her greatness with everyone.”
Wadman said she is very humbled and honored to receive and be recognized for this award.
“It is so encouraging to have the support of my co-workers, friends, family and customers throughout the Little Falls community,” she said.
In the next five years or so, Wadman sees herself married and working in a management position somewhere with the ability to help others, to make a difference.
“To me, that’s success,” she said.
