My Favorite Quote: “Optimism is the Faith that leads to Achievement, Nothing can be done without Hope & Confidence."

My name is Wendy Forgetta, I was born in Haverhill Massachusetts, where I lived for 43 years, the majority of them practicing Cosmetology. In 2008, my family and I (all except my son) decided we'd had enough of the snow and cold, so we moved to Florida where we resided for 10 years.


In 2016, we were visiting friends in Lexington and they introduced us to Lake Murray, we fell in love and bought a "Lake House." In 2017 my daughter graduated HS and moved back to Massachusetts, so my husband and I and our 2 pups moved to the Lake House.


Along with studying Cosmetology in FL, I decided it was time for a change. In 2013 I received my Realtor's license, then when we moved to South Carolina, I became a real estate agent here as well. I have a passion to help people, however I found the area saturated with real estate agents so much that it was difficult to make this career choice work for me. This is where CBD comes in to play, as I was looking for another business where I could help people and I found Your CBD Store in Lexington -  the rest is history! I am back in my element of helping people in a Beautiful, Friendly Town! 


What brought me to Newberry is the quaintness of the town and the friendly people. I felt welcomed from the moment I stepped into the town office, where I thought I was going to feel very uncomfortable, not knowing how I would be accepted. I am looking forward to hopefully many years of doing business here and enjoying all the town has to offer! 

My vision for Newberry is to create a town where people will travel miles to come and visit because we have so many different and fun things to offer. Keeping the "Old Town" look with a New Vibe.​

The advice I would give my 20-year old self is to focus on yourself, don't let others influence you into an unwanted path. Seriously do searching of your inner self so you will be able to find your purpose in life.

You would be surprised to know that I drove a regular sized school bus for HS & Kindergarten students while attending Cosmetology School at the age of 23.
