Arvest Bank is pleased to announce the addition of Tara Flackus, Associate Mortgage Loan Officer.

Tara will have a primary focus on serving communities in Gardner, Ottawa and those in-between. She is dedicated to providing a great customer experience by becoming the resource her clients need and trust.

Tara is no stranger to delivering quality work under pressure. Originally from New York, she joined the Air Force after high school and began a career in fixing medical equipment. Following a tour in Germany she returned to the states to become an instructor in the DoD military course teaching medical maintenance to Army, Navy and Air Force recruits.

In early 2018, Tara decided to end the healthcare chapter and focus on another adventure – motherhood and mortgage lending.

Tara and her husband stay busy managing work schedules and attempting to keep up with their three children – ages 10, 5 and 3 – and two dogs.

Thank you for your service and welcome to Arvest, Tara!
