Under Wendy’s direction, the Retirement Plan Consulting group at Lurie has evolved from primarily serving in-house tax and accounting clients to a stand-alone practice. Wendy joined the firm in 1996 and has helped grow her team five-fold, and increased the number of plans served from 150 to more than 500. She specializes in designing qualified retirement plans for small to mid-sized business clients, and providing ongoing technical advice and helping clients get to solutions that they may not have known were possible. Wendy is a part of Lurie’s Medical / Dental Go-To-Market team that delivers industry-focused tax, accounting, and consulting solutions.
Wendy enjoys watching her two very active children grow up. When she’s not working or driving carpools, you’ll find her out for a run, usually around the lakes. Recently, she even competed in her first marathon.
