Fun Facts about Wendy: 
I was motivated to go into administration, with a particular focus on special education, when I saw the impact a person could have for an entire population of students by modeling a mindset of high expectations for ALL and by building systems and structures that facilitate access.  

I enjoy biking, reading, and spending time with my family.
