Emily Sharp

Assistant Branch Manager Yarra Junction

Emily received her 15-year service award in 2023, and her smiling face has graced the Yarra Junction branch since it first opened. The banking sector, in her words, has been her first “real job” and her work ethic and contributions to our business have been second to none.

She lives in Yarra Junction and has three children. In her spare time, apart from running around after her children, she loves cardio boxing which lets out all her frustrations in life and keeps her fit. Emily also plays netball, loves baking and she can’t go past icecream!
