Most recently, Wendy can be found traversing across the globe on intrepid adventures in order to stretch herself beyond her comfort zones and defy stereotypes. Volunteer trips abroad have been both challenging and rewarding in the efforts to create social impact in a dynamic geopolitical landscape. Serendipitously, she was able to contribute her design and management skills while in the field to help benefit NGO projects on these trips. (Ask her about this sometime and she'd love to tell you all about these life-changing journeys!)
Meanwhile, driven by the thirst of curiosity and compelled by conquering her fears—because she 100% believes that doing the things that scare you will also reward you with character growth—Wendy also struck out on her own and opened up her own freelance business. She has learned much about the ups and downs of going solo, but is also thankful for the freedom to have done so because she now understands how to see situations through the eyes of a designer, business owner and client.
Presently, she is freelancing at various design studios as an Art Director while also occasionally working on meaningful independent projects.
Wendy's work has been recognized in AIGA 50 Books/50 Covers, Communication Arts, Graphic Design USA, Packaging Essentials by Rockport, Print Magazine, and several international design publications. When she isn't designing, she can often be found wielding a spatula, whisk, or sharp kitchen knife while listening to podcasts in attempts to learn new foreign languages (#AspiringPolyglot).
