The OnPoint Spotlight is an ongoing blog series that highlights our employees, celebrating the drive and personality of individuals on our team. It’s one way we show our appreciation for their hard work and achievements while helping our community get to know the people who make things happen here at OnPoint.
This week’s employee spotlight is on Madison Allen, Member Relationship Officer at our Coburg Road Branch. She grew up in Redmond, OR, then moved to Eugene for college and fell in love with the valley. She is an only child with a single mother, so they are more like sisters and best friends. They love going on spontaneous trips to the coast or antique shopping—finding good deals is their forte!
Here’s what Madison had to share about their life and time at OnPoint:
What were you doing before joining OnPoint or taking on your current role?
Before joining OnPoint, I worked at Umpqua Bank for four years, starting as a Teller and working my way up to Relationship Banker. Just as I was feeling ready for a change, my longtime friend Kayla at the Santa Clara Branch encouraged me to apply. OnPoint was expanding into Fred Meyers in the Eugene area, and she felt I would be a good fit. I am so grateful she told me about this opportunity because it was the best move I have ever made professionally.
Who inspires you?
My grandfather is my biggest inspiration. Although he has since passed, there is not a day that goes by that I don’t think about him and his drive to be the best person he could be. He was so creative and the goofiest person. I like to think I carry on with his goofiness with pride!
What was your all-time best Halloween costume?
When I was 11, my mom had me dress up as Ronald McDonald. I had a wig, big shoes, and the full Ronald uniform. We then went to McDonald’s, and the staff and patrons wanted my autograph and to take pictures with me. It was my best, but it felt like the worst at the time!
What was your favorite TV show growing up?
I was a big Disney Channel kid and was obsessed with Hannah Montana. I wanted to be a secret superstar so bad!
What is your most memorable vacation?
A few years ago, all the women in my family took a girl’s trip to New York City. We had an absolute blast! We definitely made our dent in the city that never sleeps!
How would you describe your team in one word?
Dorks. Just kidding! Supportive is the word I use to describe my team. No matter the day, they are not only there for our members, but for one another.
