Link / Simchi-Levi Engagement

Wendy Link and Yuval Simchi-Levi

Wendy Link of Creve Coeur, daughter of Myra Link Kovacs and the late Mark Link, and the stepdaughter of Dr. Bernard Kovacs, and Yuval Simchi-Levi, born in Israel, raised in Chicago, Ill., and currently from Boston, Mass., son of Dr. David and Edith Simchi-Levi, currently residing in Boston, Mass. have announced their engagement. 

She is the granddaughter of the late Al and Hortense Friedman and Ray and Joyce Link. 

The bride-to-be is a graduate of Marymount University in New York City where she earned her degree in costume design. She received her post-graduate degree in fashion design from The Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City. She worked for Polo Ralph Lauren for six years as a technical designer and was currently promoted to senior technical design of Ready-to-Wear at Rebecca Minkoff in New York City. Her fiancé is an Assistant District Attorney in New York City for the Manhattan District Attorney’s office. He graduated summa cum laude from Brandeis University and received his law degree from the Benjamin N. Cordozo School of Law in New York City. 

Wendy and Yuval are the current success story of J-Date. Both live in Manhattan and were reluctant to join J-Date, but decided to give it a try one last time — their timing turned out to be perfect. 

An August, 2013 wedding is planned.
