Weight Watchers names Finkeldei Territory Leader of the Year
Local Weight Watchers leader, Nancy Finkeldei, recently won the Jean Nidetch Weight Watchers Service Vision Leader of the Year award for her territory. Nidetch was the founder of Weight Watchers, and each year one leader from each territory is presented this award.
Finkeldei is in the Northern territory of Missouri, which runs east and west along the Highway 50 line, then north to Iowa, butting up to Kansas City and St. Louis. It consists of 45 counties throughout Missouri. In her five years as a leader, she has received this honor three times.
Findeldei joined weight watchers in January 2001, and became a lifetime member in May that same year, after losing 35 pounds. She went to work for Weight Watchers as a receptionist in March 2007 and became a leader in 2008. She is a leader in Marshall on Monday evenings, Odessa on Tuesday evenings and has a noon and evening meeting in Higginsville on Wednesdays.
