Ann's Choice
Trudy Sellers is pictured here in her home at Ann's Choice. Trudy wears glasses and red top, with a golden broach on her left shoulder.

Trudy Sellers is upbeat, charming, and very busy. Her lilting German accent punctuates her conversation. From her sunny attitude, you’d never suspect how painful her childhood was. Like so many of her compatriots born before or during WWII, her life was filled with trauma.

“There’s never been a better time to join the priority list at Wind Crest,” says Sales Counselor Sandy Shelpuk. “As we prepare to open two new residence buildings this year, Summit Square and Quincy Point, it’s so important to plan now to make sure an apartment home is available when you’re ready to move.”
