Wendi joins the CHA after a decade working as a substitute teacher, mainly with preK through first grade students. Prior to that, she was a humane educator at St. Hubert’s Animal Welfare Center. Wendi learned a love for all creatures great and small from her grandparents. As a kid, Wendi read everything she could get her hands on about all kinds of animals and never missed an episode of Wild Kingdom. Now that she’s all grown up, she is proud to be a mom of 2 wonderful daughters; a 10 year volunteer educator/animal handler at Turtle Back Zoo; and an enthusiastic nature nerd at all times.
