In her over 20 years spent in the technology sector, Wendy has held various roles, all with a focused effort on making companies better for women, new college graduates and new engineers.
An author, speaker, and consultant who is inspiring a global conscious movement by encouraging people around the world to connect more openly, honestly and authentically with one another. She maintains that many of us are unaware that we are disengaged from each other, from ourselves and from our purpose in life, and it is this disconnection that drives much of the turmoil in our lives.
Seeing firsthand how people were disconnected from each other in the workplace, Wendy joined forces with Romeo Marquez, Jr. to create The Connect More Project, aimed at encouraging people to connect more authentically with those around them. As a connection expert, Wendy educates her clients on how to see the ways that individual and group interaction impact us on a daily basis and how we MISS THE CONNECTION. We miss connecting to ourselves, to others and to our purpose in life. This disengagement often leaves us depressed and empty, like something is missing -- even if we can't quite put a finger on it. Because of her unique skills, experience, and educational background, Wendy is unsurpassed in effectively helping both individuals and organizations identify missing connections in order to dramatically transform and become more successful.
As CEO of Burruel Group Inc., Wendy drives change for Silicon Valley companies working on increasing their support of women in technology by creating programs that strengthen connections across organizations. She is the author of the upcoming book, College to Career for Tech Women: The Essential Guide for Landing Your Dream Job, a how-to guide for young technical women to help them land their dream career right out of school.
