Wendi joined The Hope Center team in 2023 as Guest Services Associate. 

Wendi is a native Texan who grew up in the north Dallas suburbs. She attended the University of North Texas, studying Hotel Restaurant Management. Prior to staying at home to raise a family, she worked for The Disney Store and Softbank Interactive. She is passionate about serving those who serve, spending time with family and friends, and traveling.

Wendi and her husband met in high school and were married shortly after college. They raised their son and daughter in Frisco and Plano along with several pets. Their empty nest adventure is beginning with the last child's senior year at Ouachita Baptist University underway. Her spare time is often spent on home improvement projects, gardening, and planning her family's next travel opportunity.

"I absolutely love serving the Ministry partners, who are the working active examples of Acts 1:8, bringing the gospel 'to the ends of the earth,' and 1 Timothy 2:4, desiring 'all people to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.' What an amazing place to work, watching this lived out daily."
