Wendy's personal story:

Wendy believes her personal history mirrors many people's lives today.  Living a typical western life of being very busy with a career and family, not too self-aware of how very stressed she was, she had little regard for her state of being.  In 2010, Wendy was diagnosed with cancer, and the life she knew came to a halt.  She decided to apply her knowledge of change management to herself -- 'how was she going to react given a situation she had no control over?' 


She decided to make sizable changes to her lifestyle, including making meditation and mindfulness a serious part of her everyday life.  This practice gave her the strength to change her perspective and deal with this life changing event. 

In 2011, by request from co-workers, Wendy started teaching meditation and mindfulness to a small group at work, based on her years of personal practice, attending numerous workshops, and researching the subject of meditation. Now, she is grateful to have had the opportunity to have taught over 1,000 people and the encouragement to expand this further.

Join Wendy in helping people create a better experience of life,

personally and at work.
