Wendy dedicates her life’s work to supporting people to heal and transform through the process of grief. In 2012, she founded a community-based, non profit organization, Grief Support Network, who’s mission, programs and network of resources are inspired and informed by Wendy’s personal experience of loss and professional background as a yoga therapist, yoga instructor, teacher trainer and group facilitator.
Wendy has devoted the last 25 years to being a student and teacher of yoga. She has a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and is certified as a Phoenix rising Yoga Therapist, yoga teacher, reiki practitioner and facilitator of yoga therapy groups for grief support and self-empowerment.
Before the loss of her son, Noah, Wendy had spent years helping others to explore, express and integrate experiences through the practices of yoga and body/mind exploration. In her private practice as a Phoenix Rising Yoga therapist and PRYT faculty member, Wendy witnessed the ways that thoughts, emotions and life traumas manifest through our bodies. In 2007, when Noah passed away, her grief propelled her into a process of profound transformation, which has taught her to live with more joy and gratitude in her life. Through this journey, Wendy found herself deepened in her commitment to support others.
Wendy is filled with love for her husband, Brian, and daughters, Hannah and Layla. She feels the most at home while hiking with her family in Boulder, Colorado.
