In her efforts to leave the world a little bit better, Melodie Godfrey, executive vice president/COO at Oak Ridge, Tenn.-based ORNL Federal Credit Union, has discovered the power of slowing down, thinking globally and executing locally.
“My greatest challenge is definitely not to get ahead of the organization or myself,” said the latest Women to Watch honoree. “We deal with exponentially more opportunities, change and connectivity on a daily basis than we have in the past, making finding the right pace and rhythm for an organization a real balancing act.”
Despite childhood dreams of being a veterinarian, Godfrey found a career in banking that led to discovering a niche that has been a perfect match for her dreams and passions.
