Wendy was raised, educated and lived in the Macedon Ranges area most of her life and has done the same for her two children.
Wendy spent many years commuting to work, but has been fortunate to work locally for the past 14 years.
She has been a Diabetes Educator since 2002 and thoroughly enjoys working in this area of health. Through this position, she has developed a strong interest in kidney health and aged care. Her interest in kidney health has allowed her to be a committee member with Kidney Health Australia helping to develop education packages for health professionals.
Other interests include providing diabetes education in aged care facilities to people living there and to staff caring for them. Much can be done in this area of health care as it has people with diverse and complex needs and Wendy enjoys the challenge.
Recently Wendy has been working in a slightly different environment of doing tutorial teaching at Australian Catholic University in the school of nursing. It is important for her to support the next generation of nurses as they enter into the health care industry.
Away from my work, her personal interests include gardening, walking and being with her family and lovely dog Leo.
