After graduating from Wharton Business School with an undergraduate degree and NYU with an MBA, Wendy worked for nine years in traditional marketing roles at big companies in New York such as Citibank and IBM. She finally realized it wasn't for her when, on the side, she found herself helping her friends and co-workers plan trips around the world. One day a friend said to her, "You should really do this for a living, you know so much about the world," so she dropped the corporate world like a hot bowl of udon noodles and made the move to adventure travel! Showing up in Boulder in 1996 with a car load of clothes, she marched into Natural Habitat's offices and announced in her Long Island accent her intention of working for the company. "What's the capital of Botswana?" Ben asked her. "Gabarone," she replied, and she was on board! She started developing new itineraries and working with clients to plan the trips of their dreams. She has now been to 90 countries and all seven continents, giving her a remarkable portfolio of experiences that she will gladly share with anyone who is willing to listen (we've heard it all), so please call her so she can start on you guys! In her spare time, she stays busy with her two boys, Dirk and Kyle, whom she hopes will share her passion for travel.
