FirstTrust’s Thankful Mindset

FirstTrust’s Thankful Mindset

With Thanksgiving right around the corner, we thought it would be a good time to sit back and reflect on all that there is to be thankful for. Here at FirstTrust, it's important that we recognize and focus on the things that make us the happiest. It’s nice to have a special day of the year to spend with family and/or friends and recognize that we have a lot to be happy for. However, we strive to express this kind of gratitude all year round and make sure we show our family, co-workers and friends how much we appreciate them.

So to spread some love and happiness, we asked our employees to share what they are thankful for this year. Read below for some of our favorites from our FTHL family!

"I am thankful that God placed me with such an amazing family both personally and professionally" - Renee Harris, Processor in Sheridan, AR

"Professionally, I am thankful for such a great group of people to work with and for. Personally, I am thankful for my wife and son and everything that I have been blessed with." - Duke Pearson, Loan Officer in Little Rock, AR

"I am thankful for Brandon and our kids.  They truly are a blessing and my reason for living.  Without family, you don’t have anything and I could not imagine life without them." - Heather Buck, Underwriting Manager in Sheridan, AR

"I’m thankful for my wife and son Maverick Blaze." - Byron Carman, Loan Officer in Moore, OK

"I am thankful for family! My work family and my home family keep me pushing to be better each day." - Dennisica Johnson, Processor in Shreveport, LA

"I’m so thankful I became part of this work family this year. This has been my best year ever and even though the market is crazy, and a lot of folks may be having their best year, I wouldn’t be where I am if it weren’t for the team work and support I’ve received here since March. I appreciate you all!!" - Cathy Rasmussen, Loan Officer in Hot Springs, AR

"I’m thankful for my family and their health.  Glad we’ll all be able to visit each other over the holidays this year after not being able to see each other last year during this time. I'm also thankful for all the great people I’ve gotten to meet and work with over the past year and a half.  I really enjoyed working in the processor building and getting to know all the awesome ladies who worked there." - Brannon Kotch, Loan Officer Assistant in Conway, AR

"I am most thankful for a loving, healthy family!" - Erin Henry, Processor in Sheridan, AR

"As we end the year of 2021, I am thankful and blessed for my health, family, friends, and my FTHL family.  The last 2 years have been challenging for everyone and my country, but at the end of the day I am blessed." - Carla Smith, Loan Officer in Little Rock, AR
