 Mary Wheeler to Receive Prestigious Team Builder Award

Colorado Springs, Colorado (June 22, 2015): Worley Enterprises today announced Mary Wheeler, Vice President for Colorado Field Operations, will receive the company’s most prestigious Team Builder Award. The company manages service contracts for the General Services Administration, Colorado Business Enterprise Program, The Department of Defense, Colorado Department of Transportation, and private sector consulting and retail initiatives.

Mary said she was proud and humbled by the recognition. “This is a family-owned business with a set of family values, which simply means we care about one another. We support each other.

 Jessica Beecham to Join the WE Team

Colorado Springs, CO (December 20, 2014): Worley Enterprises has launched a new initiative. Its mission is to offer EVERYONE the tools, motivation, and opportunity to enjoy a better life through healthy living. Our vision is both simple and audacious. It is timely, necessary, and far-reaching in size and scope. It will begin in our community of blind people. Our programs and services will bring the reality of a longer and better life through exercise, nutrition, and healthy lifestyle choices to underserved groups including people with disabilities, senior citizens, and other special populations. 

The WE Team has always operated on the principal that it is not just the bottom-line that matters, but rather, it is the necessity to operate with a commitment to social responsibility. Over the years, the WE Team has spent money and asked our staff to give of their time to the causes important to them. We have often encouraged team members to take time away from work to engage in community effort, which improves quality of life for all citizens. Due to the inspiration of the National Federation of the Blind, I have been afforded opportunities, which I never would have had without the philosophy and people of the organized blind movement. Through the assistance and support of the Colorado Division of Rehabilitation Business Enterprise Program, I was able to open a small business more than two decades ago. With the encouragement and advice of successful entrepreneurs, both blind and sighted, who knew the value of giving for growth and community impact, we have had good fortune. We have always found it rewarding to “pay it forward.” We have established aggressive targets within our company to employ people who are blind or otherwise disabled. We have worked to support Seeds Community Café, the Catamount Environmental Institute, and of course the National Federation of the Blind. Now, WE has the opportunity to embark on a brand new adventure. The need for a robust living wellness initiative for the blind community and beyond is acute. The need for additional, appropriate research conducted in an objective manner is timely. The need to provide targeted health and wellness solutions to our community is critical.

Our  WE Fit Wellness program will design research, develop partnerships, and implement training programs which will get people moving toward better health and wellness through small but important lifestyle changes.

Jessica Beecham has been hired to develop and direct the WE Fit Wellness initiative. Before joining the WE team Jessica did outstanding work as the Chapter and Community Development Coordinator for the NFB of Colorado. In Tennessee, Jessica worked as a recreational therapist with adults and adolescence in drug and alcohol rehabilitation. She also worked as a recreational therapist for medically fragile children where she was able to develop and implement a pediatric massage program. Jessica holds a Masters of Science in Exercise Science, is a Certified Therapeutic Recreation Specialist (CTRS), and a Certified Pediatric Massage Therapist (CPMT). Jessica is an exercise enthusiast and is eager to spread her passion for health and wellness far and wide.

Colorado is considered one of the most health-conscious, active living states in the nation. Numerous government and non-profit programs are working to keep it that way. Add another to the list. WE Fit Wellness is based in Colorado, but will have a national ambition. We will add another player on the field of improving life quality and longevity for those who are blind and others who are socially or economically disadvantaged.
