About Wendy

Who is Wendy?

I am a health and fitness coach and personal trainer who loves to write and use content to help publications and corporations educate the public on health and wellness. I believe healthy and well people can accomplish anything. But there is just so much misinformation out there that people don't know where to turn for the truth.

I've had an interest in health and wellness for a very long time. I won't tell you how long because that will tell my age — but it's been a long time. From my time as a varsity athlete and dancer, to spending time as a sports coach, group fitness instructor, and personal trainer, I've been involved in the industry in various capacities for almost 30 years.

As a longtime runner, that is my sport of choice (if it's not kickboxing) and I continue to run distances up to half marathons (13.1 miles) despite a diagnosis of Type 2 diabetes. In October 2019 I even ran a 5k and half marathon in the same day! (Check out the pic to the right!)

I have degrees in Mass Communications, History, and Business Administration (Human Resources) and certifications in fitness nutrition, personal training and a health coach certificate. In addition to all of that, I am a veteran of the United States Navy and a military spouse.
