Wendy Sciullo shares her passion about women’s leadership
When she’s not troubleshooting bank issues and helping her customers, Wendy Sciullo is lending her talents to women and youth in Butler County. Wendy Sciullo lives in Evans City with her husband and two daughters. She is the Assistant Vice President and Manager at Mars Bank. Wendy is also the Butler Chapter Co-Chair of United Way’s Women’s Leadership Council and also serves as the chair for Butler County Junior Achievement.
Wendy brings tremendous energy to her life and family. Along with her nearly 25-year career in the banking industry, she also runs a breeding business called Shady Run Labradors and keeps two daughters active in the community in the performing arts.
Wendy has always taken an interest in women’s leadership. During her time at Clarion University, she became involved with the Women’s Studies Center. And when she began working at GMAC she took advantage of the culture that focused on diversity and women. “The company encouraged me to go for my master’s degree and strive for more.” Wendy’s interest translated into a master’ thesis primarily focused on women in leadership roles.
Given her background, it’s no surprise that Wendy is a strong supporter of United Way’s Women’s Leadership Council. Despite her many commitments, Wendy feels strongly that it doesn’t take a lot to be active in the WLC. “As mothers we find ourselves pulled between work, kids, family, and parents, but getting together with other women leaders once a quarter just to interact and network has the ability to recharge you. Just talking to other women that are in the same position is very refreshing.”
When Wendy talks about WLC she always tells women you don’t have to just give money. You can also give your time. “If you have limited means, volunteer to clean up a park or take women grocery shopping. There are all different ways to help one another and to make a difference.”
Wendy also points out that female entrepreneurs, like those in downtown Zelienople, can help transform a community. “Get to know other female leaders in your area. Don’t be afraid to get involved. Participate in United Way and reap the rewards of making your hometown a better place.”
