Alliant's Heather Lally Finds Challenges That Motivate Her: T40B
An inquisitive nature and pursuit of answers to the simple question “why?” has helped lead Heather Lally, vice president of operations at Alliant Credit Union, to her dream job.
“I had dreams of being a lawyer when I was younger,” said the latest Trailblazer 40 Below, who didn’t know much about credit unions when she first joined the industry. “I ask why a lot and have always liked to dissect a situation and figure out the best possible solution. It’s not what I thought I’d be doing, but I changed paths and have never been happier. I get to do what I love while helping make a real difference in people’s financial lives.”
