Wendy was my teacher, and one-to-one coach in her Mindfulness Meditation Facilitator Training & Certification program. I had been meditating for several years when I enrolled and found that I had a lot to learn through her course and consider in my meditation journey.
Wendy helped me move my goals of introducing mindfulness in my workplace from an idea to a clear approach as I prepared to meet with my decision-makers. She helped me navigate potential barriers in an organized, research-based, needs-based approach. Her course is well-organized, includes support systems, practical tips for success and managing risks. Upon completion, I felt well-prepared to continue my journey.
Wendy is very kind, knowledgeable, experienced and accessible. This was everything I was looking for. Highly recommend!
~MJ Gilmer, APRN, Clinical Director, Marathon Health at Chico's.
Wendy tailors her advice to people's needs. She is able to provide great insight from her own experiences and her facilitator community. I appreciated her developmental feedback, which helped me as I lead mindfulness in my job, community, and my side business. Talking with Wendy was a highlight!
~Kenya Casey, Associate Director, Office of International Support - Health Program at The Carter Center.
Wendy has a keen ability to see things you might be missing, as well as to cut through to the heart of the matter, and does so with lot’s of heart herself!
Time spent getting some help from Wendy is time well spent indeed!
