Wendy Maple grew up in Glassboro, NJ and is a Temple University Cum Laude graduate with a BA in Communications – Radio, TV and Film. Her first passion was television news, where she was a reporter and anchor (Wendy Scott) for WTTV-4 in Indianapolis for a number of years in the late 80’s.
Fast forward to the present, and she is now enjoying a successful career in technology solution sales as a trusted C-suite advisor. Wendy is currently an Outreach Consultant for netlogx, a 20-year-old woman-owned Information Risk Management company headquartered in Indianapolis. netlogx was founded by Women & Hi Tech past President emeritus Audrey Taylor to help solve complex enterprise-level business problems so companies can run more efficiently.
Before joining netlogx in 2017, Wendy had previously worked in IT solution sales and staffing for Theoris, CSpring and STLogics and its sister company STBigData. It’s at STLogics. where she organized and hosted the first Indy Big Data Conference in 2014. This has become an annual “must attend” Indianapolis IT event since its inception.
Prior to Wendy’s career shift to technology sales, she was a Recruitment Marketing Strategist for First Advantage. Wendy used software tools to provide digital media and web-based talent recruitment solutions for clients like Citi bank, Best Buy, Sears and other enterprise clients.
She is happily married to her husband Mark and is the mother of two sons. Her oldest son Gil is studying to be a doctor at Indiana University’s Medical School in Indianapolis. Her youngest son Andy attends Indiana University’s Kelley School of Business in Bloomington, IN and is a walk-on linebacker on IU’s football team. Go Hoosiers! Her family dog is named Chopper and they live in Noblesville.
Wendy loves being social and getting together with family and friends. She also enjoys traveling, sports, concerts, movies, dining out and reading. Any beach is ALWAYS her happy place!
As a lifetime learner, she decided to join Women & Hi Tech to learn more about IT and find out how women work best in the predominantly male dominated fields of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). She's happy to say, Women & Hi Tech met her expectations and more!
Her goal for W & HT is to expand its outreach by improving its brand awareness and by offering more STEM related educational opportunities for females of all ages.
