Wendy Simmons, of Soligent’s Order Fulfillment department, can handle anything you throw her way. She has this calmness about her that really makes you want to take a deep breath and figure it all out. This special skill is especially important as one of her main tasks is to manage RMA’s that come through. She’s great at getting to the heart of the problem, but making you feel like you’re in it together no matter what. I’d want her on my team if the zombie apocalypse happens to be quite honest.
Wendy has a fascinating background and truly has done so much, but one little tidbit that you may not know is that Wendy used to own a pet sitting company. For 20 years! She admits that she had some clients with very particular requests and so that is really where she learned to take “interesting” personalities in stride. To learn more about Wendy, please check out more below. She’s a fantastic person and I know you’ll enjoy getting to know her just as much as her colleagues have.
