Who Am I

It is just as important to know my WHY, as it is to know me. 

 My faith is the most important thing to me and God kept putting me in a situation where I could see the struggles of others and I could see how struggles turned into failures.  

I was so confused by their failures it seemed so simple to me, both career development and company culture

Finally, I realized those are my gifts, and not at all easy for others.  I knew I wanted to help people in these areas.  

After a decade working for career development teams, a college degree in communication, and three decades of professional experience I knew it was time to leap, and Speaking Up with Wendy Baird Packard was created. 

I have proven processes in place and love helping people to better communicate in the employment and leadership realm 

I love God, my family, bright colors, VW bugs and buses, animals, the beach, smiley faces, Snoopy, antique shopping, random acts of kindness,  road trips with my husband (and son), and my work.

I know I have a purpose, and that is to help and share what I study with as many people as I can. 


Outside is where I like to be

Family is everything
