Ocean Export Manager / Documentation Specialist
Wanda found her perfect career match nearly 50 years ago when she served as the liaison with Latin American clients for a large machinery company. Her love for foreign language and appreciation of travel and culture made her an asset to the company, where she gained exposure to the forwarding industry and letters of credit. Shortly thereafter she transitioned to a multinational forwarding company, handling the letters of credit and transportation for their air export department. She spent most of her early career in the fast paced air freight environment.
Wanda joined CLN in 2002 to take on the new challenge of heading up the ocean export department. She says CLN employees are empowered to do their best work, and she enjoys the autonomy. She has been able to use her problem solving skills to master not only ocean export, but also the rigorous documentation associated with letters of credit and destination document requirements, such as legalization.
When she’s not knee deep in letters of credit, she enjoys watching classic films, visiting wineries, reading novels and spending time with her friends.
Wanda has a bachelor’s degree in French with a minor in Spanish and linguistics. She previously was IATA/FIATA certified and Air Export Haz Mat certified. She was a nominee for WFG Employee of the Year and is currently Haz Mat certified for Ocean Export.
