Banks are readily available around Brewton and East Brewton, and each one of them are staffed with very nice people. There is a young lady up at North Brewton  branch of Trustmark Bank who fits into this list very well.

Frances Jackson Findley not only works full time but she is also the mom to 5-year-old identical twin girls.

“I don’t do much outside of home and work,” she laughed. “They both keep me really busy, and I don’t have time to devote to anything else. Now they are going to school at W.S. Neal and they stay with my mother after school.”

Findley’s youth is keeping her going. She was born and raised in Escambia County, and the family still lives in the Damascus community, near other family members. She graduated from W.S. Neal in 2007 and began attending Reid State Technical College in Evergreen to train in business administration.

However, she had to drop out of school because she was at high risk and had to be put on bed rest for much of her pregnancy. In 2011, she and her husband, William Findley welcomed Alina and Julianne home.

“They are a handful,” she said. “I am lucky   to have my mother who takes care of them while I am working. My husband bought Northside Tire and it keeps him busy, so we rely on my mom.”

After the girls were born, a friend told her about a possible job at BankTrust. She was hired in January 2012 as a teller in the downtown main branch of the bank.

When BankTrust merged with TrustMark, Debbie Robinson, manager at the branch bank, hired her and she transferred to the branch bank.

“I am a Financial Service Representative, (FSR),” Findley said. “I help customers with any questions they might have and help them to figure out just what we can do for them.

“I help when the others go on vacation,” she added. “I am the backup teller for Marsha Sanders, one of my co-workers. I love working here. Everybody is family and we have the best customers in the world. It is such a good place to work. I would like to train to be a branch supervisor, but we will see.”
