Wanda is the CEO of W Rogers Executive Consulting, LLC that she started in 2017. She is also the office manager for the family business, Realty Transaction Services, a full-service independent real estate brokerage located in the Pointer Ridge section of Bowie.

Wanda is a consensus builder, change agent, and influencer of organizational culture.
In 2017, Wanda retired from the U.S. Department of the Treasury, Bureau of the Fiscal Service (Bureau). The Bureau is responsible for the government’s financial management.

Wanda established the Bureau’s Diversity Advisory Council which provided a forum for minority affinity groups to be included policy decisions impacting the entire workforce.

These “firsts” were acknowledged as a “Little Known Black History Fact” on the Tom Joyner Morning Show, a nationally syndicated radio program. Throughout her expansive career, Wanda continues to coach and mentor hundreds of women, men, and minorities.
