Hi! I’m Wanda
I joined the FBA in January of 2014.
Experience: My early experiences in life taught me to hit the ground running and take ownership of my responsibilities, earning my stripes in leadership in multiple ways. My extensive career experience in assisting and servicing customers at different levels and of diverse backgrounds has created a strong foundation for my current position with the FBA. I previously worked as a newborn hearing technician performing hearing screenings in hospitals. Before that, I worked as an executive assistant for 10 years in insurance brokerage offices and obtained my health insurance license. I longed to expand my technical knowledge, so I studied computer information technology and worked as a help desk support in a 5-star hotel & resort and other internet service companies. I have also experienced being self-employed, providing technical services and social media support for small businesses. My leadership motto is; “I’ll never get ahead by waiting for someone to tell me what to do.” – by an unknown author.

Ask me about the time I visited El Yunque Rain Forest in Puerto Rico! It was totally worth hiking for one hour up the small and narrow path to the very top of Mt Britton. The view was captivating and simply amazing. I hiked back and continued further down, located La Mina Falls Trail, and jumped into the cold, fresh waterfalls. So breathtaking!
