Having worked in the retail leasing and property management industry for the early stages of her career, it was a natural fit for Wendy to join the DMS Team in 2005 as the company’s site acquisition specialist. Along with being responsible for market analysis and site candidacy for development, Wendy maintains current and historical data on properties to evaluate for market needs. She also maintains tactical oversight of each project from property assemblage, through the entitlement process, to development of the project.
