KENSINGTON, MD — September 10, 2019 — Markette Sheppard, author and Emmy Award-winning host of Great Day Washington on WUSA 9, will join Signal Financial Federal Credit Union later this month as Vice President of Digital, PR & Marketing.

Ms. Sheppard brings more than 10 years of television, digital, and video experience to her new role. She has written several books for children and has a background in multimedia journalism and nonprofit communications. Hailing originally from Los Angeles, Ms. Sheppard has lived in Washington, D.C. for more than a decade, and is known for her inspiring activism on helping working parents in the Mid-Atlantic region navigate the great balancing act of managing their careers and busy households.

Ms. Sheppard joins as the credit union is about to open a new branch at the One Loudoun development in Ashburn, Va., and is in the process of updating many of its electronic services for members. Her new role offers many opportunities for building greater digital and video marketing capacity at the credit union.

“I can’t wait to join the dynamic team of financial experts and digital creatives at Signal who are committed to helping members of our community grow and prosper,” said Ms. Sheppard. “I’m eager for a new challenge, and Signal has been working to reach new heights in the credit union world, so I anticipate a great creative partnership that, ultimately, our entire community will benefit from.”

Ms. Sheppard hosted her last episode of Great Day Washington on September 3, Labor Day, and starts her new role at Signal on September 23.
