“I had the privilege of working with Wendy Garrod while at Station Casinos from 2005 through 2008. Wendy was the Project Manager for our Green Valley Ranch property, and as such supervised the design and construction of some of our most high-end projects; such as Hank's Steaks and Martini's, the Grande Cafe', and the Ovation Lounge, but to name a few.
Wendy excels at design in particular, and is an absolute pleasure to work with. She has excellent communication skills, both verbal and written, and commands the respect of her Team. She is dedicated, hardworking, and has an attention for detail second to none.
I highly recommend Wendy for your Team, and hope that I have the opportunity to work with her again in the future.”
As a Director with Station Casinos, Inc., I had the pleasure of working with Wendy Garrod on numerous construction related projects. I found her to be knowledgeable, dedicated, and conscientious. Her work ethic is solid. Dedication came in the form of countless hours, meticulous attention to detail as well as exceeding the expectations in job requirements. Her motivation to seek out any information necessary to deliver satisfaction to the job was customary. The professionalism with which she conducts herself in the course of work and in stressful situations is unwavering. In addition, she was always willing to assist others.
I have nothing but the utmost respect for Wendy. This recommendation is worthy and unequivocal in its message of her value to any prospective employer.”

"I have worked with Wendy both as a colleague at FoxCor and as her supervisor, while I worked as Operations Manager for Construction on the Cosmopolitan Resort and Casino.
Wendy proved herself as an extremely competent self starter, who tackled huge tasks within limited timeframes, while maintaining a positive attitude, on a very tough and complex project.
She is the type of Manager who finds hands-on work or managing others both an exciting challenge, and that attitude motivates both her supervisors and those who answer to her.
If the opportunity came for me to be hiring, she would be on the top of my list.
“I had the opportunity to work directly for Wendy at Design Masters taking her design intent and developing that into into buildable construction documentation. Her knowledge of construction, materials, and project process allowed for an efficiency in design that translated her vision easily into a finished product that always exceeded the expectations of our clients. Professionally, Wendy always had the time and patience to effectively communicate her ideas to engineers, construction personnel and clients alike in a common language that fostered a not only a "can do" environment but inspired those involved to invest themselves into the project as well.
As a result I would be happy to be part of any project I could be of service on.”
