2003 ANNUAL MEETING
September 24-27, 2003
Rep: Karen Schwartz
Mortgage Loan Officer
is a wholly owned subsidiary of Zions Bankcorporation. Headquartered
in Salt Lake City, Utah, Zions Bancorporation is the nation's 38th
largest bank holding company. Under local management teams
and community identities, Zions operates over 400 full-service banking
offices in Arizona, California, Colorado, Idaho, Nevada, New Mexico,
Utah and Washington.
Colorado offers a wide range of financial products and services
to corporate and retail consumers. As the state's fifth largest
bank, with assets exceeding $2.8 billion, we are ready to get to
work for you. Vectra Bank Colorado has over 100 branch and
ATM locations in 30 Colorado communities so you can be sure we'll
be there where and when you need us. Vectra Bank maintains
two branch offices in Colorado Springs with plans for future branches
coming soon. Currently, we're located downtown at 111 South
Tejon with a Drive-Up facility at Colorado and Nevada Avenues,
and 5710 Palmer Park Blvd.
As a native
of Colorado Springs I have witnessed unbelievable change in our
community, and not a small amount of change in my own life and career.
I guess I was destined to work in the financial arena - starting
in the late 80s at State Bank & Trust, A.G. Edwards &
Sons in the 90s and back to State Bank & Trust in the mid-90's
(now Vectra Bank Colorado). From Business Development and
Marketing to Investment Representative, Private Banking, and Branch
Management, I am excited to now be part of the Vectra Bank
Colorado, Mortgage Group.
I can say I've
seen the market from just about every point of view in banking through
the RTC years of fun and frolic and then on to investment brokerage
with A.G. Edwards & Sons in 1991. Just in time for the
longest running bull market in history. Going back into
banking in 2001 was possibly one of the best-timed moves I've ever
made, second only to having such a beautiful and wonderful daughter,
Lauren von Engeln, who lives and works in Denver. And, I guess
I had pretty good timing when I picked my handsome husband, Larry.
No matter where
I find myself in business I make customer service my priority.
Working with people to help them achieve their financial goals has
always been driven by my goal of providing a higher level of service.
I believe the combination of my experience in the financial arena
along with my commitment to extraordinary service allows me to deliver
our banking and mortgage products with special care.
Thank you all
so much for welcoming me into EWI. I'm looking forward to
getting better acquainted with each of you. If not at work,
maybe at play. My husband and I enjoy bicycling, swimming,
golf, the great outdoors, and lately yoga has been helping me stay

what we have planned for tomorrow? The Ways and Means committee
has been very busy planning our very first golf tournament. Mark
your calendar for September 15 and ask your friends, family and
co-workers to join you in a round of golf. Our success will
be that we fill the number of slots with players. This event
will help our scholarship fund get closer to reaching the goal of
At our August
meeting we will be electing our new officers and committee chairs.
If you are interested in either chairing a committee or co-chairing

doesn't seem old enough to have had all the interesting and adventurous
experiences that she has had in her life. She was born
in Roswell, New Mexico and grew up in Silver City, New Mexico, a
delightful old mining mountain town situated close to the Gila National
Forest. I have to digress here and tell you that I have been
there and found it to be one of the most appealing small towns that
I have ever visited. It has had famous residents like Billy
the Kid and Dangerous Dan of the wild, wild West.
the age of sixteen she got her pilot's license and flew a 150 Cessna.
Her father who worked for the forest service and Phelps Dodge is
a pilot and taught her to fly. He still flies
at the age of 82! Phelps Dodge is a global leader in mining
operations all over the world and particularly in copper mining
in New Mexico.

to be a travel agent. It was during a hurricane that she moved
to Kansas City and worked in the hotel industry. She also
met her husband there. She became a dental assistant after
on the job training, but she missed the mountains and returned to
God's country in 1991.
most exciting (and embarrassing) experience was when she took a
cross-country solo flight, was blown off course and ended up in
the heavy air traffic over Phoenix! She still loves flying
She is an active
member of the Housing and Building Association of the Pikes Peak
Region (HBA). She recently surprised the audience at their annual
dinner, which happened to be a birthday celebration for their president,
by singing the Marilyn Monroe rendition of "Happy Birthday
to You". I would have loved to have seen that!!!
travels consist of trips to Cozumel, Cabo San Lucas, the Grand Canyon
and Sturgess, South Dakota on a Harley!
has become very successful at her business and most of her sales
are from word of mouth. Her customers include CNN, Turner
Broadcasting System and the Pennsylvania Bakers Association when
they met at the Broadmoor. Her website brings a lot of customers
from such far away places as New Zealand. She has a helper
four days a week and during the busiest times she has two high school
We in EWI are
fortunate that she has served three years on the Hospitality Committee
because she has the outgoing and friendly personality that we need
for that job. She has made many friends in EWI and considers
