Wendy started working in vet medicine in CT the summer before her freshman year of high school.
After 8 years of working at the animal hospital in every capacity except actual veterinarian, she graduated from University of Connecticut with a degree in English literature. She moved to NYC and spent the next 15 years as an editor at Various magazines. A year later she read Dr. Goldstein’s book and felt a strong desire to be part of what he was doing. She has been at Smith Ridge since 2011.
