Francisco talks about his role in the bank and life outside the bank:

What are you passionate about in your role? I find the Mortgage Loan Originator role exciting because of the perfect combination of math and social skills. While I love the challenge of working with numbers to help a borrower qualify, I also enjoy making a personal connection with them.

What are some of your hobbies and interests? I play on the Central Mass Over-35 Soccer League. I play volleyball competitively and my wife, Margo, and I met playing volleyball in 2008. We have won several tournaments together. I also enjoy playing board games and making our two little ones laugh.

Are you involved with any community causes or organizations? I sit on the Board of Directors of Preservation Worcester. I am also a member of WalkBike Worcester, a non-profit organization that advocates for cyclists and pedestrians. I am a member of Adelante Worcester, another non-profit that helps promote and empower the Hispanic/Latino community of Greater Worcester.

Can you tell us a fun fact about yourself?  I went to medical school for three years until I realized it was not my passion. My family still thinks I know every trivia question related to medicine.
