“What matters cannot be measured in dollars. It should be measured in the people we love, the friends we nurture and the way we treat strangers.”
Wendy values honesty. This is true for both her family and the people she encounters in her work as a CPA/CFO in her family business. She has ambition to get things done, but also a compassion for the people around her. Her motivation for working hard is rooted in a desire to do what is best for her family. This makes sense when she tells you that her home is where she finds peace. It took 12 years to find the land and build the house but when she arrives home after a stressful day, she feels the calm that allows her to relax. Her 88-year-old mother is her lifelong best friend. When her daughter was born, her first wish was to have a bond with her as strong as that with her mother. Today, that wish has come true and is greatly cherished.
Wendy perceives that people believe her generation are less forward thinking, that they work too much and that women over 50 must love rhinestones and burnout velvet. She would love to break all these misconceptions and encourage people to see women over 50 as they are and how they live instead of relying on common stereotypes. Wendy and her husband, John, have always made spending time with family a priority. She has future ambitions to thrive and maintain the family business but understands the importance of balancing that with time off from work to focus on what has always mattered most; the four generations of family she is blessed with.
