Amy Breithaupt

Breithaupt named Mortgage Loan Officer at Truity Credit Union
Truity Credit Union (formerly KU Credit Union) is pleased to announce that Amy Breithaupt has been promoted to Mortgage Loan Officer. Breithaupt started her career at Truity Credit Union in 2006 as a teller. She was promoted to Member Consultant in 2010. Her duties as Member Consultant included consumer loan origination, which led to a promotion to Loan Administrator in 2013. That position gave her the experience that led to her recent promotion to Mortgage Loan Officer. “Amy’s extensive experience at the credit union makes her extremely valuable to our mortgage department,” said Vice President Ginger Wehner. “Her genuine interest in helping people and her critical thinking skills make her a valuable asset to our Mortgage Department.”

Breithaupt was born and raised in Lawrence and graduated from Lawrence High School in 2007. She earned a bachelor’s degree in General Studies at Fort Hays State University in 2013.

“My past experience at Truity helps me think of ways to make it possible for our members to get a mortgage with us. For example, if a member’s debt to income ratio is too high, I can often help them refinance their auto loan which helps them lower their debt to income ratio and get the home they want,” said Breithaupt.
