Hello, my name is Jorge, and I was born and raised in Dallas, Texas. One of the things I always wanted to do as I was growing up is to help people. When I was young, I remember my parents telling me to be kind to people and always to help those in need. That is where I get my passion for helping people. It brings me joy to see someone succeed in whatever they do. It brings me joy to help someone get out of a hard situation financially and succeed.
Being a part of Resource One Credit Union since 2007 has given me the experience to develop and educate myself to help our members that need financial counseling.

I have lived in Texas since I was around three years old. I’m the youngest of 3 girls. Both of my parents were entrepreneurs, so I was raised around the “small business” mentality. Due to my upbringing, money and how to make it work for you has always fascinated me. I have been in the banking industry since 2008 and started working at Resource One in 2019. I’m grateful for this transition because it has allowed me to continue my quest for financial knowledge in various aspects of banking.
I’m passionate about people seeing the light at the end of the tunnel in their lives. With darkness that is always around us, I enjoy it when I can partner up with someone who is committed to the process of change. We can acknowledge the shortcomings and improvement areas, but not stay there. I desire to assist in achieving the prosperous financial lifestyle that you want.

Hello my name is Vincent Nieto and I have 15 plus years in the financial industry with a little more than 5 of them being right here at Resource One CU. I was born and raised in the Dallas area so it is extremely important for me to work for a company that is so passionate about our Community and Resource One continues to do this so well.
I attended college in San Antonio at The University of the Incarnate Word on a soccer scholarship and ever since that time I have had to really rely on myself financially, which is where my interest in finance really began. I was really forced to become independent and mature quicker than many of my friends because of my financial independence.
Like others I had to learn a lot of lessons the hard way because I was not knowledgeable enough to know how to build my credit or know not to take out unnecessary loans. I have learned so much from that time and in my 15 years in the financial industry, so being able to pass that knowledge to my members is what truly motivates me everyday
On my free time I love to cook and BBQ, entertain my family and friends, while usually rooting on all my Dallas Sports teams; Dallas Cowboys, Mavericks, FD Dallas, Texas Rangers, etc. Yes, I’m a sports guy!

My name is Erika Reyes and I am currently the Branch Manager of the East Dallas branch at Resource One CU. I have been with Resource One for what will be 13 years in December and in the financial services industry for 16 years. My experience has given me a wealth of knowledge when it comes to the art of moving money but most importantly it has given me the chance to share that knowledge with people who need it the most. I enjoy the genuine connections that I get to be a part of every single day.
As a wife and a mother of 3, I am passionate about my family and our growth as a unit as well as the growth of each of us individually. This has given me the ability to connect with my members on an even more personal and human level. I enjoy learning and I believe there is no cap for personal growth. Change is inevitable and I constantly want to be an advocate for anyone ready to make a change for the better.
