Utah born and bred, Wendy is not your "typical" Utahan inasmuch as she likes to challenge people in their way of thinking and encourage people to think outside the box. Her motto has always been one of "let's color outside the lines and see what we create!"
Wendy first became aware of SHEROES United at the urging of a friend who invited her to a Town Hall meeting. That evening swiftly turned into an opportunity of a lifetime as she joined an amazing group of women who make up SHEROES United, and has never looked back. She brings with her over 17 years of non-profit experience in major gifts, fundraising and event design/management, as well as content strategy and marketing. Additionally, she loves to see others grow and thrive through empowerment, compassion, healing, and conscious intent.
As a mother of two boys - 22 and 16 - Wendy works hard to instill in her boys a sense of chivalry, community, service, faith, compassion, and above all else, doing the right thing even when it's the hardest thing to do. There are always opportunities to look at the experiences in life and use them as something to build upon while finding the positives,creating compassion and bringing love into the community through support, protection, and understanding. In addition to her role with SHEROES United, Wendy serves on the Board of Directors for the Murray Chamber of Commerce, volunteers for various agencies in Salt Lake City, and has been a consultant on content strategy, brand management and marketing to small businesses along the Wasatch Front. She is also the Director of Community Outreach and Partnerships for Special Olympics Utah. Her favorite title out of all of these - is that of MOM.
