He has been in the Credit Union industry for 11 years now, citing the one distinct advantage of his job as the ability to help people. “It is great to work in an industry that was founded on cooperation. It’s about people helping people,” and he is proud that his employees echo the same sentiment.

During his time-off, Clarence is fond of spending time at his children’s athletic events at Lackawanna Trail High School, or with the Impact Panthers Softball Team and all of their parents. At home, he enjoys watching movies, his favorite being “The Outlaw Josey Wales”, fishing with his children, and enjoying a country lifestyle. Clarence was raised in Tunkhannock; therefore, he loves every aspect of Northeastern Pennsylvania. “The changing of seasons, mountains, fishing, and family is what I value most in NEPA,” states Clarence.

My favorite part is using the cold lavender washcloth at the end, it’s so relaxing!” This fitness fanatic also enjoys working out at Chiseled Fitness in Pittston. She states, “Ashley, the owner, is great at pushing me during her classes so that I finish with a chiseled body!”

She is also a proud member of NET’s Philanthropy Team, which she decides where we can donate thousands of dollars. Having resources to help people is a great feeling for her!
When she isn’t busy at her job or working out, Mileise enjoys relaxing at home with her cherished dogs Ruby, a Puggle, and Iris, a Cane Corso Italian Mastiff, who are more like children to her than animals. In her free time, this fashionista enjoys binge watching TV series and documentaries on Netflix and Amazon Prime, especially her favorite, Girls, from HBO & Tony Robbins: I Am Not Your Guru.
