Wendy, originally from North Dakota, attended the University of Minnesota where she received a BA in Psychology in 1997. She then spent 9 years managing Non-Profit Group Homes for adults with developmental and intellectual disabilities. It was this experience that sparked her interest in the complex issues of her Residents and led her back to school for a degree as a Registered Nurse in 2005. She returned back to the Group Home setting to serve as an RN for the next 7 years. Leaving the cold behind in 2012, Wendy was Florida bound and found an Administrative Nursing position at St. Mark Village. In the fall of 2014, Wendy became the Director of Nursing and continues to strive each day to provide the best continuum of care for each Resident.
