With more than 50 million unique visitors to the site last month and 17 million reviews, Yelp­ is the fastest growing destination for local information. From Web to mobile, business reviews to social networking, Yelp has been helping locals connect to great businesses since 2004, and now it's in Calgary! As technology continues to spread quickly across all of Canada and tech jobs start to appear in Calgary, Wendy can speak to her first-hand experiences in working with a community that exists both online and off.

Born and raised in Alberta, Wendy Peters came to Calgary six years ago to work with the ATCO Group of Companies. She joined Yelp last fall as the Calgary Community Manager. In this role, she supports the amazing Calgary community, helping them discover awesome businesses and events in their area. Wendy also writes The Weekly Yelp, a hyper-local Calgary e-newsletter that goes out every Wednesday.
