Wendy was born and raised in a small town in northwest Pennsylvania. She left home at 17 to attend college and explore the world. This took her to Zurich, Switzerland, where she lived for 15 months and provided her with the opportunity to travel elsewhere in Europe to explore the many great cathedrals, castles, Roman ruins, and other historic sites. Wendy also lived in Utah and California before finally calling Austin home. Wendy received her Bachelor of Science in Accounting from WGU Texas. In her spare time, Wendy enjoys time with her Norwegian Forest Cats (“Wegies”), working on her soy candle business, and relaxing with her husband on their land near Lampasas.
