As her career progressed, she served several roles including Customer Service, Sales Administration and Trainer. In 2010, Flanders was promoted to Learning and Development Officer for Meredith Village Savings Bank, and expanded her role when MVSB and Merrimack County Savings Bank affiliated in 2013 as sister banks as part of New Hampshire Mutual Bancorp.

She has been a regular volunteer for the Greater Lakes Region Children’s Auction and Making Strides Against Breast Cancer.
New Hampshire Mutual Bancorp, a mutual holding company, was formed in 2013 when two New Hampshire-based community banks, Meredith Village Savings Bank and Merrimack County Savings Bank, formally affiliated – the first relationship of its kind in New Hampshire. This strategic partnership has positioned the Banks to leverage each other’s strengths as they work together to advance a shared vision of maintaining and enhancing their community banking standards and values. MillRiver Wealth Management joined as a third subsidiary of NHMB in 2015, combining the financial advisory divisions of MVSB and The Merrimack. NHMB combined assets total more than $1.6 billion.
