Sean and Caleb Wilson have an amazing mother, one who considers them the most important people in the universe and describes them as “her whole world”. We know this exceptional individual as Tabitha Wilson. Tabitha originally hails from Arizona, where she began her career in the financial industry in 2007 with Arizona State Credit Union. During her 5 years there, she found an interest in community involvement, becoming an Ambassador for the Queen Creek Chamber of Commerce. Her regular involvement in weekly events helped solidify her passion for community work. In 2012, Tabitha moved to St. George, Utah, and went to work for Mountain America Credit Union. This led her to Vernal in 2014, where she was promoted to Branch Manager in 2016. This is when her involvement in the Vernal Area Chamber of Commerce began, including as a member of the Hospitality Committee, and the Public Relations Committee. Tabitha has been a member of the Dinah-Mites, Ambassadors for the Chamber, since 2016 and has served as Vice President and President. In 2020 Tabitha was elected to the board of directors for the Chamber of Commerce. Tabitha has also served on the Terra Academy School board for two years.
Tabitha can often be found volunteering at various community events such as the Dinosaur Roundup Rodeo, the Esquire RV Show, serving breakfast at the ATV Jamboree, collecting food for the local food pantry, cooking at the Ronald McDonald House, and cooking food for various charity golf tournaments. Each year Tabitha provides community service during September with the MACU Cares focus. In past years she has done trash cleanup, painted the BTA bus benches, volunteered her time with the seniors at the Care Center, put together Back to School backpacks, among others. One of Tabitha’s favorite volunteer experiences has been over the last 5 years helping with Hotel Vernal Haunt in various capacities. She loves creating an awesome experience for the guests and helping scare the charity out of them.
At Mountain America, Tabitha has worked to help the community by leading her team to proactively refinance millions of dollars of loans per year, something appropriately called “rescued loans” at MACU, putting over two thousand individuals and families in the Vernal area into better financial circumstances. Her branch has reached record levels over prior years several times under her leadership. Tabitha also has been recognized as an early adopter within her company, being among the first branch managers to complete her Coaching Certificate when the Inside-Out program was rolled out to the company.
Tabitha has also served in various callings through her church such as teaching Primary, Cub Scouts leader, and for the past 2 years as Young Women’s President. She loves spending her time with the Youth in helping them grow into amazing leaders themselves.
Tabitha loves the Vernal Area and from day one, she felt welcomed into the community. She loves spending time outdoors camping, hiking, shooting, fishing and kayaking with family, friends, and of course her two sons. When she can’t be outside, she enjoys reading, puzzles, escape rooms, board and card games, cooking, and baking. Tabitha is passionate about serving and helping others, whether that be through her work with Mountain America in helping members improve their financial situation or through serving her family, friends, team at work, or in serving those in her community.
The Public Relations Committee of the Vernal Area Chamber of Commerce is pleased to present the Quarterly Outstanding Public Service award to Tabitha Wilson for her continued involvement and commitment to our community.
