I’m Wendi Bulkley. I have four kids, including 3-year-old twins. We’re into family activities, swimming, fishing, hunting, and camping. I also like to play volleyball and softball, as well as organize events, host parties, and go shopping. I get paid to play, and I love it. One day I’m running a corporate sports challenge, the next week I’m in charge of a dance recital, or we put on a large scale community event such as our summer bubble bash.
I’m the Washington City Community Center Director. We utilize the Community Center from top to bottom and fill it with educational offerings for after school, with sports, leagues or any type of an event or tournament. We work with our youth through a youth council or get them involved in service, leadership positions, or employ them with jobs.
We also network and create partnerships with businesses, whether through sponsorships, or services. Our sponsorships range from $50 to $5,000 and you can target different groups such as seniors, other businesses, etc. We utilize committees with citizens and business owners who help us develop programs.
I wanted a job where I wouldn’t be doing the same thing every single day and where I would get to meet a lot of people. This is the dream job for me. I get to create whatever I want. And if it doesn’t turn out well, then we re-evaluate and switch it up for the following year.
WHAT KIND OF THINGS YOU DO FOR CLIENTS ‘JUST BECAUSE’
I really like to surprise people with random treats, passes to the community center, or thank you baskets. It’s just little surprises once in a while for a client, business, members, or my staff. It just makes their whole day.
AN OBSTACLE YOU’VE OVERCOME
I just ran my first half marathon. I really wanted to get in shape so I started trying all the new classes such as boot camp, PowerX, and TRX. It was out of my comfort zone. I don’t like everyone seeing me work out, but I’ve got to get fit too. I’m slowly building a passion for trying new exercise classes and getting out of my comfort zone.
WHAT ARE SOME WAYS YOUR COMPANY DISTINGUISHES ITSELF
We love hosting client appreciation nights for businesses or employee socials. We’re a great venue to host holiday Christmas parties or a summer employee social, because of the amenities we have. They can have a barbecue swim party, enjoy the rock climbing wall, sand volleyball, or float on the lazy river. We can pretty much customize any kind of party. So I feel like we’re the perfect venue. Our slogan is ‘Something For Everyone, All In One Place.’
