West Vancouver’s Wendy Lisogar-Cocchia may look like just another pretty face, but beneath this tiny frame lies a superwoman of epic strength and generosity who can now add the title of “Governor” to her list of achievements. It was a well-deserved honour for the businesswoman and mother who is not only founder of the Absolute Spa Group, but is also responsible for raising over $2.6 million for various children’s charities. She has also served as a Board of Trade director and, most recently, as chair for the organization during 2011-12. Last week, The Vancouver Board of Trade inducted Wendy to their Council of Governors at an elegant gala evening that also included honours for developer Terence Hui (Concord Pacific Developments) and Telus. Congratulations Wendy – you are an inspiration to us all.
