Here at Executive Elements, we like to feature fantastic women we think you should know. Some of these women are clients, some are friends, some are womCHADWID3 - 2014 (1)en we’ve only just met. But they all have this in common: they are dynamic, interesting women who have agreed to share with us their insights and secrets to success.

My name:
Dee Dee Chadwick

My current job/company:
Sr. Director, Advanced Consulting Group, Nationwide Financial

My birthday:
June 11, 1972

My work:
I work with business owners and Plan Sponsors to help them implement executive benefit plans that are funded with financial services products.

My passion:
My relationship with God, my family, teaching my children to be the hands and feet of Christ.

My family:
My husband Stephen, my son Spencer, 11 years old and my daughter Reagan, 9 years old.

My heroes:
My mom Linda, my sister Lori, my sister Lindsay, lots of Aunts, and my 97 year old grandmother Elizabeth (The Grand Matriarch).

My escape:
Vacationing anywhere with my family.

My pet peeve:
Group texts that go on for days.

My indulgence:
Mountain Dew (Nectar of the Gods).

My roots:
I grew up in a very small town south of Columbus (isn’t every town in Ohio a small town?). I had a wonderful, loving, and nurturing family. I didn’t realize how “normal” we were until I moved away and learned to appreciate the finer things in life.

My future:
Only God knows.

My favorite quote:
“The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched – they must be felt with the heart.” (Helen Keller)

My accessory:
Fun, sparkly statement necklaces.

My advice to young women:
Be yourself, trust your instincts, and if you don’t have anything nice to say then don’t say anything at all.

How I balance it all:
It only looks like I’m balancing it all – most days I’m putting life together with duck tape and a glue stick. I’m fortunate to have a husband who truly partners with me in making sure that everything gets done. We tag team every day and approach it on a day to day basis, sometimes hour by hour. I make a lot of lists, and rely on the family Google calendar to tell me where I’m supposed to be at any given time. And pray – a lot!
