Since 1988, Lisa Thornton has been an important member of the team at Peoples Bank. Starting out as a bookkeeper, then a teller, Lisa now spends her days helping customers as a customer service representative at our Boonville branch. Lisa grew up in Boonville, graduating from Boonville High School, and worked at a grocery store for 9 years until she started at Peoples. She enjoyed it so much, she has stuck around for the last 32 years. She says that, “it’s a wonderful place to work!”
While Lisa says that her fellow employees are like family, she’s also proud to connect with her customers and their families. Seeing customers come in with their kids and grand kids to open accounts with her makes her feel like she can help make an impact on their family. Even when a family member passes away, Lisa is there to guide the family through managing their loved one’s accounts. She wants to be there for her customers in good times and bad. Customers can feel all kinds of emotions when they come in, but Lisa wants the be sure that when they leave her office they feel like she has cared for their needs.
Lisa and her husband Jim are the proud parents of two daughters, Allison and Amanda. Much of their time has been spent wedding planning this, as Amanda was married in April and Allison is getting married in November. Lisa and Jim have also enjoyed traveling in their camper. Most trips have been fairly local in 2020, but they have plans to take the camper all the way to Florida soon.
Whether you need a new checking account, a savings account, a CD, a credit card, or any of our other products, come by the Boonville office and speak to Lisa. She’ll be glad to help you with whatever you need.
