BUSINESS BRIEFS: First Federal hires new mortgage loan officer … and other items

PORT ANGELES — First Federal has added a new mortgage loan officer to its mortgage lending team.

Melanie Pilgrim was most recently a loan officer with Wallick & Volk in Bellevue.

She graduated from Ventura High School in California and attended Ventura Jr. College, Mesa College and Hancock Community College with an emphasis in math, science, business and phycology, and has completed mastery programs in her field, bank officials said.

She has more than 10 years of experience as a loan officer, officials said.

“We are thrilled to have Melanie as part of our team of knowledgeable and dedicated lenders. She brings many years of experience and expertise, and is passionate about helping every customer. Melanie’s time in the San Diego community has greatly contributed to the knowledge of VA lending she brings to First Federal,” said Ross Thomas, director of the mortgage lending department.
