Wendy co-founded Matrix Roofing & Home Solutions back in 2007 and is now the sole owner. The company was founded on the principles of customer service, people over profits, integrity, and trust. She works fervently to keep her company grounded in those values. As the business grows, so does her desire to become a bigger part of the community and they were recently rewarded in 2018 with a Small Business of the Year award from the Greater Vancouver Chamber of Commerce.
A Habitat for Humanity participant since 2009, the company added the No Roof Left Behind (NRLB) free roof program and installed the first roof in 2018. They also plan to install 2 Veteran specific free roofs in 2019. Her passion for the industry led her to focused involvement in National Women in Roofing, the Roofers Coffee Shop Influencers, and also to serving in the Roofing Technology Think Tank (RT3). Because of her passion for business and growing female leaders she also serves on the Board of Directors for the SW Washington Girls Inc.
On a more personal level, Wendy has been through the ups and downs that a life well lived tends to bring. She has battle scars and bruises that lend color and depth to her bright, friendly smile. She believes in hugging often and lives life seeking knowledge. Loving to read, discuss, challenge and connect, she is a champion of underdogs and enjoys every minute of this completely complicated and ever-changing life. Wendy is a strong leader who surrounds herself with phenomenal employees. That’s what she calls her secret sauce. She resides in Washington and has 3 astonishing kids. Family is a high priority for her, and she enjoys crazy evenings playing games (including wine) and almost any outdoor activity.
