Meet Melissa Trunk, a Relationship Manager at Exchange Bank! 

Tell us about what you do? Give us your “elevator speech”
I am a relationship banker at the Bennett Valley Exchange Bank. I take care of opening business and personal accounts, and equity and non-equity lending.

How long have you been with your company/in that line of work?
3 years

What do you enjoy most about YPN? If you are new and haven’t experienced what YPN has to offer - what are you hoping to accomplish within this community?
I enjoy being part of a group that empowers young adults to find success and an enjoyable work/life balance

What do you bring to YPN? If you were to be a go to person for a fellow YPN member what would they go to you for?
I feel resourcefulness and a sense of urgency are the most important attributes for a professional person. If another YPN member came to me with an obstacle in their work life I would help them find the tools they needed to find success, and I would be sure to communicate with them throughout so they knew I was working on the issue and in what stage of the process I was in.

How long have you been in Sonoma County? If a short period where are you from originally?
I was born in Sonoma County and lived here most of my life. I have left “for good’ a number of times, but always find myself missing our community.

Whether it is “Hakuna Matata” “Carpe Diem” or “Just Do IT” - Do you have a motto in life?

I enjoy immersing myself in my work, and often focus and further educating myself in my field. There are times when I need to find a better work life balance and I like to remind myself “Time you enjoy wasting is not wasted time.”
