    Project Coordinator Gale Rebennack Retires after 36-Year Career

    A long and fulfilling career has come to a close at Wessler. After 36 years of service and loyalty, Gale Rebennack has hung up her front desk and project coordinator duties and stepped into the life of retirement.

    Throughout her years with Wessler Engineering, Gale always brought a smile to her co-workers' faces and was eager to assist on any project. If you had a question about a project from years ago, Gale was the one to go to for the right direction. If you were curious about the early years of the company, she was your go-to company historian. In a nutshell, Gale was – and will forever be – the heart of Wessler Engineering.

    Gale’s tenure with the company began back in 1983 when she answered an ad in the Indianapolis Star for a part-time secretarial position at M.D. Wessler & Associates (now Wessler Engineering).

    “I had no idea it would lead to such a long and fulfilling relationship,” said Gale. “When I started, there were eight employees and we worked out of a small house with an attached garage and basement.

    “I came to Wessler with no onboarding and was not familiar with engineering tasks, but I could always go to Mel Wessler (co-founder of Wessler Engineering, alongside his wife Sharon) or Don Corey with questions,” Gale added. “I have had the opportunity and privilege to work with some of the brightest and kindest people! We are truly a family at Wessler and I will miss you all very much as I move on to retirement.”

    All of us at Wessler Engineering thank Gale for her many years of loyal service and wish her all the best!

    Employee Spotlight: Bridget Philpott

    Wessler is proud to announce Bridget Philpott, E.I., as the July Employee of the Month! Bridget joined Wessler in 2016 and serves as an engineer in the Indianapolis office. She works in the areas of designing and evaluating wastewater treatment facilities and sewer and sanitary collection systems. She is also an expert on where and what to do in Europe! We had her answer some questions so that we can get to know her better.

    What are your roles and responsibilities at Wessler?

    My roles and responsibilities as an Engineer in the Wastewater Group include assisting in the design of wastewater treatment plants and collection systems, performing preliminary studies and providing construction administration services.

    What does the “Wessler Way” mean to you?

    To me the “Wessler Way” means understanding each client’s unique needs and doing everything you can to provide them with the highest quality work.

    What are some of the most valuable lessons you have learned?

    Since starting at Wessler I feel like I have learned something new every day. One of the most important being that there is always more than one way to do something and to make sure you think of the end user when deciding between alternatives. The choices you make when designing their system will affect them for years to come.

    Outside of work, what are some of your favorite hobbies?

    I enjoy baking, hiking, traveling and playing lacrosse. I also love to read and joined a book club at the beginning of this year to make sure I actually take the time to do it. If anyone has any book suggestions let me know, I’m always looking for my next book!

    Rumor has it you have travelled to Europe – what are some of your favorite places? And where do you plan to travel to next and why?

    I’m lucky enough to have travelled to Europe four times, with the most recent trip being when I went to Spain earlier this year. It’s hard to pick a favorite but Santorini, Greece is the most beautiful place I have ever visited and Prague, Czech Republic is the most unique! I’ve always wanted to see the northern lights, so for my next international trip I am planning on going to the few of the Nordic countries.

    What are some must-do activities when visiting the Chicago area?

    Growing up in the suburbs of Chicago I was often able to go downtown and explore all that Chicago has to offer. As some of you already know, I could go on for days about things to do and particularly what to eat while in Chicago, but here are a few of favorites:

    Hoosier Mama Pie Company (try the Fat Elvis Pie)

    Sailing on Lake Michigan

    Museum of Science and Industry and Adler Planetarium

    And of course, going to a baseball game for Chicago’s best team…the White Sox!

    Employee Spotlight: Michelle Everetts

    Wessler is proud to announce Michelle Everetts as our March Employee of the Month. Congratulations, Michelle! And thank you for your hard work and dedication. Below, we asked Michelle some questions so that we all could get to know her better.

    What are your roles and responsibilities at Wessler?

    Officially, I’m a CAD Tech; but being in a satellite office, I get to help out in a lot of different ways. Everything from office supplies to proofreading memos. But my heart is in providing graphics, especially maps, every which way for every purpose. You need a map? I’m your girl.

    What does the "Wessler Way" mean to you?

    It means having an amazing team of people a phone call away that know way more than I do on a variety of topics. And, in turn, providing them with whatever support I can offer.

    What are some of the most valuable lessons you have learned?

    Still learning it: Take a breath. Use my filter.

    Outside of work, what are some of your favorite hobbies?

    I like crafting, I’m just not very good at finishing my projects. I have so many unfinished little projects around the house. The most looming one is a quilt I started about 5 years ago. In the summer I also like to play in the dirt. I’d say gardening, but I’m not that good at actually growing things. Once I regain some strength and stability, I want to start riding bikes again with my daughter and husband (we’ve got a great trail system in Fort Wayne).

    You do a lot with Kiwanis...what is your favorite element of that?

    It’s a local and global group of people who are passionate about serving others. Being around that and doing my part to help just fills a void for me. To learn more about the Fort Wayne Kiwanis Club, click here. To learn about Kiwanis International, click here.

    You lived in Russia? What was that like?

    I was pretty young, right out of high school, and I was there for seven months. One of my biggest personal takeaways from the experience was related to communication: If two people honestly want to communicate, they will, regardless of language or other barriers. I had some fabulous conversations with new friends, each of us only knowing a few words of the others’ language. I guess maybe that’s why one of my biggest pet peeves is a failure to communicate.

    What is one of your favorite stories about your daughter?

    Oh, which one to pick?!?! She’s our first and only child, and each day is a new story. We’re constantly amazed at the things she learns when we don’t know she’s listening, and are, of course, convinced she’s a genius, and going to be an artist AND an engineer of some kind. Right now she claims she’s going to visit the moon, but she’s not going to drive the spaceship, she’s going to fix it.

    Your husband is a professional musician, and you keep a radio going in the office - what style of music do you like? Do you play anything?

    Yes, my husband teaches Music Technology and plays mainly percussion, but I left singing and playing behind about 20 years ago. While I played a variety of band instruments in school, the bassoon was my love. Moment of honesty: I still get choked up when I hear a good bassoon riff. So if anyone has one they’d like to donate, I promise I’d put it to good use. Regarding what I listen to? Mostly current pop and classic rock.

    If you could add any piece of technology to your job, what would it be?

    It just happened – my dreams came true. We have a full-size color plotter!
