About Wendi

I am a psychiatrist with many years of leadership and clinical experience in a variety of healthcare settings, ranging from disaster response to direct patient care to C-Suite responsibilities at a major medical center.  In addition to having strong interpersonal skills and an eye for detail, I see the whole picture when it comes to mental health: what consumers want, what clinicians need, and what it takes to make organizations thrive.  As one of my former supervisors once said, “Wendi helps people bring their A game.”  Contact me to find out how I can help you and your team achieve success.
