Meet OceanFirst’s WaveMaker of the Month – Volha Kislaya

October 1, 2020

We’re pleased to highlight our OceanFirst Bank colleagues who are making a difference with the Foundation’s nonprofit partners – we call them the “WaveMakers” and they’re extraordinary leaders and volunteers.

How long have you been on the OceanFirst team?

I joined Cape Bank team in 2015. After acquisition, I became a part of OceanFirst Bank in 2016.

Favorite quote?

I like quotes, and I like collecting them. Personal favorite “What you think, you become. What you feel, you attract. What you imagine, you create.” And the ones my coworkers hear from me often are “Numbers don’t lie” and “Actions speak louder than words.”

What motivates you to stay involved and give back through volunteering?

I feel appreciated by the community, and I like dedicating my time to something meaningful.

If you could have one song play every time you entered a room what would it be and why?

Levels, Avicii. It is just the right beat to set a good mood.

What aspects of your work are you most passionate about? 

My ability to help a person or a business at the critical time, solve an issue and make them feel worry free.

What’s your go-to karaoke song? 

I liked this summer tune lately – Watermelon Sugar, Harry Styles.

What’s been your favorite volunteer activity?

Cape May Food Closet Organization in Cape May. I like volunteering activity hands-on. We deliver food to the community. And getting to know new people and each of their stories has been one of my greatest rewards.
