Wendy Simmons started her career in the Financial Services industry in 2006 with ELE Wealth Management. Prior to joining ELE Wealth Management, Wendy worked for Northwestern Dodge training to own and operate an automotive dealership through the Chrysler Minority Dealer Development Program. While learning the ins and outs of running a dealership, Wendy became aware of the lack of money management skills and financial literacy in the greater Detroit area and this fueled her passion to teach others the principles of building wealth and preparing for retirement.
Following her passion Wendy earned her Series 7, 63, 65, 24 and Life/Health while working with ELE Wealth Management until 2009. After relocating to Alexandria, VA in 2009 she joined Merrill Lynch as a Wealth Management Advisor and built her own book of business while presenting wealth management principles to numerous churches and community organizations. Upon relocating back to Michigan, in 2015 Mrs. Simmons joined Williams & Company, LLC where she helped educators across northwest Michigan understand their pension and health care benefits.
Wendy was asked to rejoin ELE Wealth Management in April 2018 as the Director of Securities and Investments. As a licensed Wealth Management Advisor, Mrs. Simmons was responsible for managing over $65 Million dollars in assets. Always looking for greater opportunity in 2021 she joined Prudential Advisors as a Private Client Advisor working with high net worth clients. In her free time, Wendy loves traveling and spending time with her husband Stiles of 24 years and her three beautiful daughters, Jasmine, Alyssa and Jayla.
Mrs. Simmons earned her Bachelor of Administration degree in Marketing and Management from Northwood University in 1994.
