Speaker's Bio: Wendy holds a bachelor of arts degree from Stephens College in Columbia, MO.  She has been married for more than 30 years to her husband Karl and they have two sons, Kyle, 27 and Cody, 23.

At Catholic Charities, Inc. as the Director of Development and Community Relations, Wendy works to create fundraising and communications strategies to increase support from individuals, corporations and foundations.

In her leadership position, she plays a key role in identifying, cultivating and soliciting major donors for capital and annual gifts, and securing the resources necessary to ensure the daily operation of the agency.  In addition, she manages the volunteer relations, stewardship, marketing and community relations efforts for the agency.

After nearly 15 years of working in for-profit business, Wendy began her work in not-for-profit businesses in 1988 serving as the volunteer coordinator for Catholic Charities.  In 2002 she moved over to another diocesan ministry, The Lord's Diner, and for 8 years served as its executive director before stepping down in July, 2011.

Wendy's return to Catholic Charities comes from her desire to "do more" and through her work to have a greater impact on the lives of those in need.  Her ultimate goal is to share the multiple ways Catholic Charities stabilizes families in crisis and strengthens families for life so that donors will know their gifts will be used to alleviate poverty and build strong families in the Diocese of Wichita.
