Today we want to introduce another GCRC staff member to our readers. Her name is Wendi Nunnery and she is our Social Media & Public Relations Specialist. Wendi has been a part of our team since December of 2013 and we are so glad to have her! Learn more about Wendi below:
Hi there! As you know, my name is Wendi and I’m GCRC’s Social Media & Public Relations Specialist. Basically, I’m in charge of all of our social media accounts, including the management of this blog, as well as representing GCRC in the media. I spend my time online all day, every day, creating schedules for our social media accounts, which include Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram (where you should follow us!), reading and re-posting relevant news, researching, and writing everything from short film scripts, emails, and press releases to blogs entries and social media updates. I also attend Kiwanis meetings each week as a representative of GCRC and get to connect with other people in our community there. A few months ago, I had the very special privilege of shooting, scripting, and producing a short film you might have seen called For Your Consideration: A Look at Supported Employment. The film was created to showcase what our region has been doing to provide employment opportunities with individuals with disabilities and, most importantly, to reveal just how valuable this cause is, not only for those with disabilities but for the general public, as well.
I’ve been working with GCRC for a year now and it has been so much fun getting to know our staff and the individuals we support. It has opened my eyes to a community I have always known existed, but didn’t really understand. And now the passion our team has for helping serve those who have often been disregarded by society is a passion I share. I’m thankful that I get to spread the word about what we do with others and I hope that people will come to care about individuals with disabilities as much as we do.
Outside of work, I am an author, wife, mother, and friend, among other things. I am active in our church where I volunteer and lead a small group of some really incredible women. My husband and I have been married for six years and we have a little girl named Lucy who just turned one. She is the sweetest baby and we adore her! I am also a Huffington Post blogger and my debut noel, The Best Kept Secret, will be released by BookFish Books on June 2, 2015.
