Employee Q&A Spotlight with Melissa Boone

March 16, 2018

Our employees are what truly make Northwestern Bank a great organization and place to work. We have some amazing people with different backgrounds and personalities who have a real passion for what they do: helping Northwest Iowans reach their financial goals. So, what better way than to spotlight an NWB employee each month?



Meet Melissa Boone

Before I started working at Northwestern Bank, I had originally applied for a job at Cain & Ellsworth in Sheldon, then the Bank called asking if I was still looking for a job and if I would be interested in applying…that was back in December of 2001! 

I love what I do at Northwestern Bank, and I enjoy helping our customers every day. Northwestern Bank’s strongest quality is their flexibility and understanding of raising a family.  There are not many places that are supportive of working mothers with young children. And I am very thankful that NWB is – that makes it a great place to work, with an awesome culture! 

My favorite part about living in Northwest Iowa is the close relationships that are established in a small community. I am originally from Sheldon, but lived in Oklahoma for 8 years before moving back to Iowa. 

In my free time, I enjoy going to concerts and seeing my favorite bands live!  I also love spending time with my 3 children and husband. 

One thing most people don’t know about me is that I studied Interior Design at ISU.
