Kristi Schoenbachler Board Treasurer
KRISTI SCHOENBACHLER, CCCS BOARD TREASURER
CCCS Past President, John Blackhurst, volunteering his time, with Kristi Schoenbachler at CCCS's 2015 Applebee’s Fundraiser.
Kristi Schoenbachler moved to the Rogue Valley in 1995 and is currently the CFO at Medical Eye Center in Medford. She has been a CCCS Board Member for 3 years now, but actually became a fan of CCCS over 25 years ago! One of Kristi’s first jobs after college was working in the credit department of a department store. She was the liaison with the local CCCS in Richmond, VA and worked with them to establish payment plans for their customers. Due to this experience, Kristi gained first-hand knowledge of how CCCS debt management plans help people take control of their debt.
As a Board Member, Kristi has had the opportunity to gain a deeper knowledge of CCCS operations. When asked what surprised her most about working with CCCS, she answered, “The variety of assistance they provide. CCCS provides financial education throughout the valley to students, veterans, and works with employers to educate staff, among others. They provide reverse mortgage, credit reporting, and bankruptcy counseling, and, of course, debt management counseling.”
Even with a full schedule, in addition to volunteering as the Treasurer on the CCCS Board, Kristi volunteers in the Money Management Program. This program assists low-income seniors and community members with disabilities in managing their finances. Kristi describes her involvement with the MMP volunteer experience, “My husband and I each currently work with clients of Living Opportunities. Very little time is required each month, yet it is so rewarding to be able to do.”
While it may be difficult to imagine Kristi having any free time, she has a variety of other activities she enjoys. “I love cycling with our friends in this beautiful area, running with my Weimaraner, Sasha, and reading. My newest hobby is learning to play the banjo (must be my West Virginal roots!).” CCCS is proud to have all of our Board Members reside in Southern Oregon!
