After graduating from Wharton Business School with an undergraduate degree followed by an MBA from New York University, 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 coworkers 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, Colorado, in 1996 with a carload 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 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! She and her husband Alek have two young adult sons, Dirk and Kyle, whom she hopes will continue her passion for travel.
Together, Natural Habitat Adventures and World Wildlife Fund have teamed up to arrange nearly a hundred nature travel experiences around the planet, while helping to protect the magnificent places we visit and their wild inhabitants.
