EvaChaleff_HeadshotI am currently an ABL Underwriter at Crestmark Bank, where I previously held positions in Field Exam and began my professional career. I graduated from Florida Atlantic University with a BBA in Accounting, and reside in Delray Beach, FL. Since joining Crestmark in 2015, I have grown a passion for the commercial lending industry and have involved myself in the networks associated. Aside from YoPro, I am a board member of the South Florida chapter of the CFA, on the Women In Commercial Finance (WICF) committee and a part of the social media sub-committee, a part of the Association for Corporate Growth (ACG) as a Young Professional member, and a member of the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners (ACFE), as a CFE.

Any hobbies people are surprised to hear you have?
Playing guitar and piano. 

Vacation spots you recommend?
I embarked on a four-day hike to Machu Picchu last year and it was the most incredible experience. Peru is a beautiful country, and I highly recommend visiting this particular historical wonder if you ever get the chance.

Most interesting company you have worked with?
My professional experience is limited to Crestmark, but I can certainly say it’s far more interesting than my college jobs. I learn something new every day, and always have in each of my positions. Crestmark combines its creative customer experience with its ability to operate as a member FDIC in a unique way, of which I’m proud to be a part.

Favorite dish to cook?
Macaroni and cheese (not from the box)

See any good concerts or entertainment events lately?
I love the circus, and more specifically Cirque du Soleil. The most recent show I saw was Volta in Miami, which was my favorite one yet.
