Chamber Ambassadors, lending a helping hand

It takes people to connect with people, and The Chamber Ambassador Program is all about connecting with people. Our ambassadors work closely with the Chamber to make those connections throughout our community. By volunteering their time at Chamber events, talking with potential Chamber members, and celebrating our local businesses successes they are strengthening the framework of community.

Lori A. Hatfield

Branch Manager

Atomic Credit Union
1501 Columbus Ave. Washington CH , Oh 43160
740.313.8452 ext. 1905

I attended American Public University and obtained my Business Administration degree. I’m raising two strong willed daughters Daylin and Aubrey who I believe will be the death of me. We live in Frankfort and frequently came to Fayette Co so when I got the opportunity to work here, I was excited. This community has a home feel to it and being able to be part of the community has been humbling. I’ve seen so much growth in this town in my short time here and I can’t wait to see all the things that are evolving. I have worked for Atomic Credit Union for a little over 7 years and have worked various positions within the company, the Credit Union is invested in the communities that they are in, and I hope to be able to show Fayette Co that we are here to put in the work to be part of this growing community. When I’m not working, I enjoy traveling, being with family and simply enjoying the outdoors.

Why I am an ambassador:
I’m an ambassador because I wanted to see the community from different lenses. Being an ambassador gives me the opportunity to meet other businesswomen and men of all different career paths. It’s huge for me seeing new businesses and already established businesses thrive. Being an ambassador gives you that platform to see great things from the beginning, and to see already established businesses grow that give back so much to the community.
