Wendy's students appreciate her obvious caring, passion, directness, and authenticity. Whether working with stress or with alcohol and drug issues, Wendy works her magic by raising awareness and modeling effective coping, decision-making and goal-setting skills that support students in developing and sticking with healthy habits and happier, more rewarding lifestyles.
