Melissa Thompson, IT System Administrator II | SouthStar Bank Gonzales Annex

Melissa Thompson is an IT System Administrator II at the Gonzales Annex. She has been with SouthStar for 10 years and holds almost three decades of experience in the finance industry. Working in IT, much of what Melissa does is behind the scenes; however, her work has a significant impact bank-wide. Melissa takes pride in making everyone’s lives easier, working to simplify and automate processes to allow every employee to operate at maximum efficiency and help make our star shine.

Outside of work, Melissa is very involved in her local church, where she leads a Youth Group as well as a Ladies’ Bible Study. She enjoys organizing activities for the Youth Group, including an annual all-night lock-in, bowling trips, and the occasional Christian concert.

While Melissa spends her days at SouthStar plugged in, she covets the time she can spend unplugged. Her favorite vacation was a seven-day cruise where she was free from phone calls, the internet, and any semblance of a schedule. She also enjoys golfing with her husband, vacationing with her family, and spending time with her new grandson.
