October Member Spotlight on Wendy Westmoreland, Director of Human Resources, Habitat for Humanity of Greenville 

1. How did you get into HR?  

Habitat Greenville is a non-profit organization and like most non-profits, employees often have to wear more than one hat.  I started at Habitat 6 years ago as the Executive Assistant to the President.  Four years ago, the person that had been doing our HR left the organization, so I began taking responsibility for some of the HR functions.  After receiving my HR Generalist Certification from Greenville Tech and often seeking the advice of our HR Consultant, my HR responsibilities increased over the next few years.  Our small non-profit is on the cusp of reaching 50 employees (we are currently at 47), so we decided that it was time for a dedicated HR person.  I moved into this role full time in July 2017.

2. What is your favorite restaurant in Greenville?

My grandson loves Kanpai of Tokyo, so if it’s his favorite, it’s my favorite.  And he likes the Hibachi Chicken, or as we say in the south, the “How boutcha’ chicken”.

3. What are your hobbies outside of work?

I like to take car trips, especially to Raleigh NC to visit my son.

4. What does leadership mean to you?

A leader is someone who is willing to share their knowledge and passion with you to help you achieve things that you never thought you could.
