Gift Norwood Celebrates Five Year Anniversary

Congratulations to Gift Norwood, Loan Operations Assistant, who celebrates five years with OlyFed this month!

Gift Arruk of Olympia Federal SavingsHired in August 2018, Gift began her OlyFed career as a Customer Service Representative at the Downtown Olympia branch. Because of her commitment to gaining new skills and expanding her wealth of knowledge, Gift was promoted to Loan Operations Assistant in February 2021 where she currently serves the needs of our loan customers.

Her knowledge, drive and dependability during her five years with OlyFed have earned her several awards for all her contributions to the bank’s success. “Gift is an incredibly thoughtful and compassionate person, who takes great pride in producing the highest quality work to ensure our customers receive the best experience possible,” Josh Deck, President & CEO said.

In her free time, Gift enjoys spending time with her husband and their daughter, Delilah. They like to go clamming and oyster shucking, cooking their catch right on the beach! In addition, she enjoys flying and traveling. In fact, before she began her career at OlyFed, Gift worked as a flight attendant.

A strong competitor when it comes to games, Gift is a remarkably skilled table tennis player. Don’t let Gift’s competitive side fool you, she is also very creative and is an amazing artist, who loves working with several different mediums. Her watercolor cards are especially beautiful!
