Growing up in the military, Wendy has had the opportunities of living in Alaska, Hawaii and her favorite place, Madrid, Spain.  Living in Spain gave Wendy a step up at a very early age to learn how to speak Spanish, allowing her to embrace her family heritage.   She really enjoys speaking Spanish to children at her previous private schools she has been employed at in expanding her little one’s vocabulary at a young age.  She looks forward to doing the same here at Vancouver Montessori, she feels blessed to be working here.  Wendy has worked with children at different private schools for over 15 years aside from raising three children of her own.

Wendy had three grown children, one daughter and two sons who are currently living on the East Coast.  As far as her interest, she loves walking, Kayaking, hiking beautiful trails, enjoys taking in the sun whenever possible.  After Covid-19, she looks forwarding to taking ballroom dance classes along with some salsa classes, too!
