Biz: How did you draw inspiration during the rebrand?
M.E.: When you think of banking, you might think of a traditional, even cold feel. We wanted to do something completely unexpected. A big part of that is because of Volt’s CEO, Loretta Roney. She’s warm, approachable, funny and down to earth—the opposite of a traditional banker. Ultimately, we wanted people to walk into Volt without feeling scared about financial limitations. Some words that inspired us were “moxie,” “electric” and “vibrant.”
Biz: You juggle a lot—how do you stay balanced?
M.E.: I have two little boys, and we’re expecting a little girl this fall. Everything I do is for my family, that’s my “why.” I’ve also been teaching and practicing yoga at Sumits Hot Yoga for eight years, and that’s my deepest passion outside of motherhood and family. Yoga and mindfulness help me stay centered.
