Augusta Financial would like to recognize Brittney Lloyd for going above and beyond during the last quarter. Brittney joined the Augusta team in February 2021 as an assistant on The Mike Meena team. At the end of March, an opportunity opened that matched Brittney’s skill set in our Human Resources department and she jumped on it. Her past experience as a manager for Starbucks has been instrumental in revamping our employee handbook, as well as streamlining new systems, and updating policies and procedures.
With a background in the food service and retail industries, the mortgage business was completely new for her. Putting aside her fear of the unknown, she joined the team, learned quickly, and became a great asset to Mike’s team. About 3 years ago, Brittney was injured at her previous job and now lives with a chronic pain disability called Complex Regional Pain Syndrome. Her injury forced her to focus on living one day at a time and to embrace challenges put before her. We challenged her early on with the move to Human Resources, but her character and flexibility allowed her to transition smoothly into her new position.
In her free time, Brittney loves spending time with her family, her “fur baby” Dallas, or baking. She is an AMAZING baker, always coming up with new ideas for pastries and desserts and is known for her Oreo cookie cake. Her dream job is to own her own bakery/café someday.
An avid tea drinker and Disneyland lover, Brittany loves spending time outdoors and watching sports. She loves the family-like atmosphere at Augusta and is always willing to have an open mind and ask questions. We enjoy watching Brittney grow and help grow the company. She brings her best to work daily and makes Augusta Financial a better place. We are proud to have her as our Above and Beyond Employee of the Quarter.
