Loebig Ink Team Member: Wendy Salzman
Wendy Salzman didn’t set out to become an SEO specialist. In fact, it was her husband, Kenny, who first took an interest. Brian Loebig and Kenny Salzman network together as the current president and vice-president of BNI Capital Business Alliance. When Kenny took on a project and discovered search engine optimization wasn’t for him, he thought it might be something his wife would be good at and enjoy. Luckily for her and the Loebig Ink team, he was right!
Wendy grew up in Montgomery County and attended the University of Maryland where she studied Special Education. She utilized her degree well; after college she became a Special Ed teacher and for 17 years instructed children with learning disabilities. In time, she sought something new and different. When a mathematics position became available, Wendy began teaching sixth grade math, which makes up the rest of the 35 years she has been in the classroom. An important focus of her teaching is conceptual learning, which helps students understand why a solution makes sense rather than relying on simple memorization.
Being a teacher with an interest in technology and a love of learning new things makes Wendy a natural at SEO. She enjoys writing metatags and meta descriptions. The process is somewhat like a puzzle. It requires taking a great deal of information, putting it together, fitting it into a small space, and making sure it all makes sense. She especially enjoys making changes on the back end of a website, and in a short time, seeing the measurable, positive results.
Wendy enjoys binge watching a TV series now and again, and she likes some quiet things like baking and crossword puzzles. But more often, she’d rather be active. She meets her sister-in-law for a 4 – 5 mile walk almost daily. If the walk isn’t on the schedule, she’s likely to be found doing an at-home workout from Beachbody.com. The T25 workout is one of her favorites. Also a big sports fan, she likes to follow the Nats and the Caps.
The most important thing of all to Wendy is family. She has been married for 31 years and has two children – a son who is 25 and a daughter, 28, who will be married at the end of the year. As a very driven and hard-working person, Wendy envisions a future in which she gives herself a little more permission to relax. She hopes to retire from teaching soon and to make time for more sunshine, beaches, and overall relaxation. A recent family trip to Colorado serves as inspiration to take it easy, travel more, and enjoy the simple things in life.
