Annual Visit (meeting at R10 Social House, 179 N Harbor Dr, Redondo)

Born in Chicago, the oldest of six children, I learned leadership, management, organization, accountability, and responsibility while growing up in Los Angeles, California. Attended Pepperdine University, earning a Bachelor of Science degree in math and psychology and a Masters degree in Administration and Management of Schools.

I’ve taught high school algebra and geometry before serving as a school administrator with LAUSD, a manager in the auto industry and as the Executive Director of a nonprofit agency in the real estate industry. I worked in the real estate industry for 20 years, now specializing in the commercial sector.

I’ve always strived for leadership roles as my way to be of service. As president of the Rotary Club of Inglewood, I developed interest in the business of Rotary and grew active on the district level. Attending our District’s Humanitarian Trips, I saw first-hand my Foundation donations at work across the borders. It is my belief that if we are sincere about the work we do as Rotarians through Rotary, the Rotary Foundation should be the first charity on our list for giving.

The greatest gift given to me, by Rotary, is my beloved husband. What a joy to have a life partner who shares my Rotary values and experiences. We work and play with the most unlikely folks from communities all over the world, developing friendships and partnerships, while helping those in need.

Olivia served on the board of directors of Music Mends Minds and as an ambassador for the Rose Bowl parade.

Zoom meeting:    Retirement Investment - Beyond the $$$

Before becoming a Certified Professional Coach specializing in Retirement Life Planning, Wendy Leggett had a rewarding 25-year career as a Sales Leader in diverse industries, including technology, health care, and fashion. She attributes her past sales and service success to the relationships she built with customers and team members. When Wendy discovered that a career in coaching could build upon her commitment to serving and connecting with customers while making a difference in people's lives, she returned to school to become a credentialed professional coach and founded Conflux Business Coaching.

The focus of Conflux is to help individuals successfully navigate the transition from one's career to a fulfilling and purpose-driven retirement. Wendy is passionate about supporting clients in making this next life chapter one of possibility, positivity, and growth. She helps her clients zero in on Retirement's much overlooked non-financial aspects (identity, social networks, meaningful activities) to maximize their Encore years ahead. In addition to a BA from the University of Washington, Wendy has certifications for Retirement Life Coach (CPRC), Retirement Life Plan Coach (RLPC), Mental Fitness (CPQC), and Certified Professional Coach (ACC).

In her spare time, Wendy enjoys hiking, family time, cooking (she makes a mean Shakshuka!), and volunteer work supporting children and young adults in need.
