Wendy has lived in Durango for 13 years as a traveling

in mission work in Nicaragua and Guatemala and other
villages in Central and South American countries since
2009. Wendy hopes to continue to volunteer
internationally where a variety of dermatological diseases
persist without treatment.

“Wound care is a complex specialty that involves challenging
one’s patience and attention to detail while engaging in what’s
known as time-sensitive disease management. I find it very
rewarding to watch others heal. It is my hope to approach
wounds from many angles drawing from my experience as a
proceduralist and hospital-based Nurse Practitioner. I’ve
experienced how sick people can become if intervention isn’t
done without using a team- oriented approach and adhering to
close follow up. I’m happy to be a part of a proactive group of
people and I feel that I have the same vision as many who work
at SHS. I truly love the different cultures we see at SHS and I feel
the Wound Care clinic has so much potential to continue to
improve the health of our community.”
