COLUMBUS, Ohio — A veteran 911 dispatcher supervisor is showcasing her versatility and strength by taking center stage in professional bodybuilding competitions, ABC 6 reported.
Wendy Massey, 55, has worked in the Columbus Emergency Communications Center for nearly 30 years, according to the report. She started her career in bodybuilding seven years ago and earned her professional bodybuilding card in 2019.
“I’m here for my people; I try to administer them to do the best job they can do,” Massey told ABC 6. “[Being a dispatcher] teaches you patience. You have to have patience when you’re dealing with people … So, it taught me patience.”
Massey will compete in her final bodybuilding season this year and also plans to retire as a dispatcher, according to the report.
“It’s a sense of accomplishment to know that I put my mind to something, and I set out those goals and I obtained those goals,” Massey said.
