Farm Credit of the Virginias (FCV) recently announced that Shauna Janczuk of Franklin County, Virginia, has joined the team as a Loan Officer II. Janczuk brings with her a strong financial background and personal experience with agriculture. She will report to Joey Cornwell, Regional Sales & Lending Manager.
Growing up in Morrisville, New York, Janczuk spent much of her time on her family’s small beef cattle operation, which her brother and father still own and operate. She then attended Ithaca College in Ithaca, NY, and received her bachelor’s in Business Administration before moving to Virginia in 2005.
Janczuk has significant experience in the financial field, which will be an asset to the Rocky Mount lending team. Before joining FCV, she served as an Assistant Manager in a sales office for 13 years. Eager to get back to her farming roots and join a community-focused organization, Janczuk jumped at the opportunity to join FCV, “The sense of family and community involvement at Farm Credit really excited me initially and still does! I’ve been welcomed openly by everyone and they are all so willing to help me learn and answer my questions. It really has a family feel at Farm Credit.”
In regards to her new role, Janczuk says, “Working with the local community and getting to know all the folks in it is what I’m looking forward to most.” She continues, “It’s important that we focus on customers in smaller underserved markets that may not otherwise have access to the services that Farm Credit can provide.”
In her free time, Janczuk enjoys traveling and spending time with family, especially if that involves going to the beach or camping. She loves exploring new areas, and always tries to stay somewhere new during her adventures. Having a sports-oriented family, she also spends a lot of time attending and watching football, basketball and hockey games.
Joey Cornwell, Regional Sales & Lending Manager, said, “We are very excited to welcome Shauna to Farm Credit of the Virginias and to our Team here in Rocky Mount. It’s great to have someone with her expertise on our team and we are confident that the Rocky Mount office will continue to grow and provide our Member-Owners with outstanding service.”
