MEET THE HEROES
Nurse Practitioner, New York
Being a single teen mom, Wendy worked hard to make sure her son was on the right path in life. Wendy is always there and available for friends and family, even after her long shifts at the hospital.
She battled COVID during the early days of the pandemic, first by testing patients and then contracting it herself. Her passion is educating underserved communities and families affected by diabetes, hypertension and obesity, making sure they can make the best health decisions.
In her free time, Wendy enjoys taking part in volunteer events with her church and hospital, like disaster relief after Hurricane Sandy.
Her son Angel calls her “gentle, loving, and strong”.
