During her time with the program, Wendy has worked with Embed, Rotational, CYB and School MFLC teams supporting the Army and Airforce. Wendy believes being a part of the MFLC program is her way to serve our military and families that have sacrificed so much for us all. She believes we do this by assisting with building resiliency and coping skills and strengthening families to manage the unique challenges experienced by Service members and their families.

In addition, she specialized in play therapy working with children in the foster care system along with parents and families involved with Child Protective Services.

Wendy was raised in Dallas, Texas, and she is a Texan through and through. There is no reason to move when she lives in the greatest state (and there is no lack of pride here)! She is the proud parent of four beautiful girls and one son (who is her dog, Shiloh) and wife of an amazing man, Robert. Wendy spends her time away from work being a cheer, soccer, softball, and basketball mom…and most importantly a taxi driver! She loves spending time with family and friends!
