House of Delegates
Wendy grew up in Cranbury, New Jersey where both her mother and grandmother were public school teachers. Wendy’s first job was at the Rutgers Police Department in college where she applied her equestrian background to service. She worked as a student mounted marshal, logging 30 hours a week with a full course load. After graduating, she applied her details-oriented mind to technology. Following in her family’s tradition of strong, working women, Wendy went on to lead a team at Bell Laboratories when she was 26 years old.
After she met Chris, her husband of now 25 years, Wendy made the move to Northern Virginia. When she had kids in the mid-1990s, she became enamored with education. Wendy received her Masters in Education from Shenandoah University, taught in the Clarke County public school system, at an area private school, and partially homeschooled her children. As her kids grew up and entered college, Wendy knew that she would need to help pay the tuition bills. She joined RE/MAX as a realtor four years ago, and has been there since.
Like millions of other Americans after the November election, Wendy decided that she had to get off the sidelines. She co-founded an Indivisible chapter in the predominantly red Clark County, and grew the organization to over 300 members. Now, she’s running for the Virginia House of Delegates to take her wide-ranging experiences and two decades in the district to advocate for us in Richmond.
She believes that our government should provide all Virginians with the basics – job opportunities, safe roads, clean air, and equal opportunity. Wendy has the experience, perspective, and heart to represent District 10 in the Virginia House of Delegates.
