“For me, it’s all about the personal things.” 

Call it kismet or serendipity. Either descriptor will work just fine for Carole Fisher who seemed destined to meet her now great friend, Vicky. 

Six years after her husband’s employer relocated him to Muskogee, Carole packed up the kids and dog and made the long trek from Pennsylvania to Oklahoma, where she discovered a community much larger than the one she’d left. 

After time to settle in, Carole joined the Eastern Oklahoma Library System as business manager, responsible for making the wisest-possible financial investments of the system’s earmarked ad valorem taxes. She then began shopping around for a bank that offered the most competitive rates on CDs and money market accounts. But she also looked for a higher level of service and efficiency among friendly faces who would come to know her name. 

American Bank of Oklahoma was among Carole’s multiple stops, and her visit would mark the first time she met Vicky Spradling, ABOK’s Vice President of the Muskogee retail division. 

Between bank visits for business, and later moving her personal accounts to ABOK, Carole kept running into Vicky at local organizations where the two discovered shared interests as members and volunteers. Now, after a 20-plus-year friendship, Carole will tell you it all started at a bank that continues to exceed her expectations. “Every employee goes out of their way to help you, starting Day One,” she says. “For me, it’s all about the personal things.”
