"Tough times never last but tough people do," said Lee, who joined the company nearly 30 years ago. She started as a summer clerk in 1982, held several positions and today is a director of compliance.

"My advice to others is to practice the habit of going the extra mile," Lee said. "Step outside your comfort zone to take on new challenges. New experiences lead to new skills and will set you on the course for greater responsibilities."

Lee volunteers at pet rescue centers in Indianapolis, Ind., and is an advocate for pet adoption. She is a board member and past president for the Student Loan Servicing Alliance, a nonprofit, membership organization of student loan servicers and software providers who work together to promote best practices.
