Wendi Coley joined HRD in January 2022 after spending 9 years with FireSeeds, a boutique recruiting firm based in Birmingham, Alabama, where she was a senior recruiter owning all aspects of the recruiting process. She has an undergraduate degree from Samford University where she played college basketball and went on to obtain a Masters in Exercise Science from the University of Dayton. Because of her strong background in fitness and wellness, she got her start in recruiting fitness coaches and managers for a fitness start-up. She helped this start-up grow from 5 to 40 locations across the country, and then began recruiting a variety of positions and industries. Some of her experience includes the following roles: VP of Sales, Director of Human Resources, Director of Communications, Accounting Managers, and Executive Assistants. She also worked with Chick-fil-A franchisees across the country recruiting Director level leaders for their teams. Wendi loves building relationships with her candidates and clients and is excited to be a part of HRD to continue to make an impact in the HR Industry.
In her spare time, Wendi enjoys being active, spending time at the lake with family and friends, watching her son play sports, and traveling with her husband, son, daughters, and dog.
