Wendy comes to UWCT after 28 years at a large international school in Bangkok and more than 30 years of experience in Thailand. She began her educational career in adult education, but soon discovered that she enjoyed teaching children much more and taught ESOL in primary school and then taught Grade 6 for many years before moving to admissions and alumni.
Wendy has a BA in Asian Studies and an MA in Applied Linguistics from University of Wisconsin – Madison. She is active in community service and is on the board of the After The Wave Foundation, Thailand and enjoys working with her admissions counterparts in the EARCOS region to plan the Marketing and Admissions strand for the annual EARCOS Leadership Conference.
Wendy has been interested in travel and foreign cultures since a young age and as a result was selected to be an AFS International Exchange student to Thailand while in high school. Both of her children were born and raised in Bangkok and are DP graduates. Presently her daughter is working in LA while her son attends school in Wisconsin.
Wendy enjoys swimming and biking and - as an owner of the Green Bay Packers NFL team - loves watching American football games.
