Introducing: Ada Diaz!

Please join us in welcoming ADA DIAZ to the Orion team.  She joined us in December as a part-time bilingual teller at our American Way Branch.  We were lucky to find Ada through one of our Orion Gives Back partners, Latino Memphis, where she previously worked as a translator.
