No one embodies Community Banking more than Annette Houle. Annette has been with Chelsea State Bank for 42 years. She is currently Vice President, Branch Administrator for the Bank. She began her career with Chelsea State Bank in 1977 in the Bookkeeping Department and progressed through the retail operations of the Bank.
“I enjoy that I work in a small community that I have lived in all my life,” said Annette. “And I especially enjoy the relationships that I have developed with long-time customers and employees at Chelsea State Bank. I’m proud to work for an institution that is so community oriented and that provides great customer service and cutting edge products like mobile deposit and Kasasa rewards checking accounts.
During her off hours, Annette enjoys spending time with her family – two sons and five grandkids. She also has eight siblings, including five sisters that all live locally, so she truly enjoys “weekends with the girls!” Annette turned 60 this year and celebrated with a trip with some friends to New York City. This was Annette’s first trip to NYC, so she hit all the highlights including Broadway! As a Chelsea native, she took in the Broadway play To Kill A Mockingbird with Chelsea native Jeff Daniels.
When Annette isn’t working or spending time with her family and friends she enjoys working outside in her garden and reading. Oh, and she says she also enjoys eating, “I enjoy all food. Haha.”
“And I love a good road trip. If I was on an island, I would make sure I have music with me. And the best music is from the 70s! As for television, I binge-watched Downton Abbey and saw the movie in September. I also like musicals, and my current favorite is The Greatest Showman.”
We think Annette is the Greatest Banker! Please stop in and say “hello” when you see her in the Bank or in her favorite community – Chelsea!
