Mandy Wheeler-Brown: Honda Production Supervisor
For Mandy Wheeler-Brown’s work as a Honda Production Supervisor, she helps ensure high-quality production of transmissions for Honda and Acura products, including the Odyssey, Pilot and Ridgeline and Acura MDX, remains on schedule. She joined Honda when HPPG began operations 10 years ago in her hometown.
Wheeler-Brown Overcoming Adversity
Wheel-Brown is also an inspiration for her ability to overcome a number of adversities in her personal life, including a shark attack in the Gulf of Mexico as a college student. While such challenges derailed her dream of becoming an Olympic softball player, it led her to channel her competitive spirit to other aspects of her life, including helping run a 600-acre cattle farm she co-owns with her grandfather. Also, Wheeler-Brown is heavily involved in supporting charitable causes in her community and says her values align well with Honda’s corporate goal to be a company society wants to exist.
“I struggled for a long time after the shark attack, but it made me appreciate what I have. I love what I do on the farm and I love working for Honda, so I am gaining from both sides. It was always important in my family to give back to our community and see what we could do to make it a better. I feel that spirit in my workplace at Honda as well.” – Mandy Wheeler-Brown, Production Control Supervisor at Honda Precision Parts of Georgia
