Hi! I’m Cathy Wankel

Your Pampered Chef Consultant


About Pampered Chef


  We celebrate the power that mealtimes have to become something more: a way to transform relationships, share stories, create traditions, and build happier and richer lives. But, with today’s expectations, we know finding the mealtime win can be difficult. We’re here to help bridge that gap between the ideal mealtime and the realities of today. We do this through our distinctive, high-quality kitchen tools, parties that show you how to make delicious, timesaving recipes, and the opportunity to join our supportive international community of more than 50,000 consultants.

   As a prior small business owner, I dealt with customizing personal services.  I gained the trust and repeat business of over 100 clients from a wide range of backgrounds.  I was able to bring those qualities to my current career as a real estate broker for the #1 name in real estate....Keller Williams.   The Springfield area is special to me having lived here since 1974 and spent over 20 years involved in various community organizations.  Having bought a home myself, I know the importance of having someone to guide me. I would love to be the person you chose to be With You All The Way.
