Wendy Beach helps people discover and apply their unique character strengths to build resilience and flourish. Focusing on what's strong in all of us to counter the focus we tend to have on "what's wrong", Wendy obtained her credentials in educational and positive psychology in order to help people live authentically and feel good about who they are - right now - and as they grow and live fully in all of life's ups and downs.


Ms. Beach has held varied leadership roles in economic and workforce development at local, regional and national levels.  In addition, she has been an entrepreneur:  co-founding a private sector driven workforce investment collaborative in northeast Wisconsin which won an innovation award from Wisconsin’s Governor, and, a corporate intrapreneur:  creating a new line of business for a global staffing organization which leverages community partnerships to help people with barriers to employment obtain jobs leading to careers. 


Wendy serves as a grant reviewer for the U.S. Department of Labor Employment and Training Administration. In addition, she advises regional health organizations, businesses, and is involved in community-based boards and committees. In her free time, she is a Pet Partner animal handler, loves cooking, baking and home renovating, and stays as active as possible with her husband and pets including hiking, camping, water sports, snow sports and travel.

With a B.A. in Political Science and Psychology from the University of Michigan and an M.A. Psychology in Education from Teachers College, Columbia University, Wendy focuses on the common thread of all of her work – helping individuals, organizations and communities discover and apply their unique strengths to build resilience and flourish. 

What does Resilience look like to you__e

If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be. Now put the foundations under them.
