Founder’s Story

After spending years as the Executive Chef and Chief Baker at home, Bertha Mae’s Brownie Co. is Wendy Pomerantz’s entry into the professional culinary world.

After 17 years of working, living and breathing the Commercial Real Estate Lending industry, including as head of credit administration for a start-up real estate company and vice president of credit and underwriting for various banks, she decided to follow her heart and carry on her great-grandmother’s baking legacy. Today she enjoys endless hours of baking, creating and feeding delicious treats to the masses. As she transitions from Banker to Baker, Wendy is taking her head for numbers into the kitchen and the world of entrepreneurship, and loving every minute of it!

Wendy earned her Master of Business Administration, with an emphasis in Finance, from Pepperdine University and her Bachelor of Arts in History and Government (double major) from Clark University. She is a native of Los Angeles and resides in Sherman Oaks, California with Heath, her husband of 19 years, their two children, Sydney and Riley, and their many animals.
