Wendy aspires to live a simple and contented life in a world brimming with chaos. This means eating whole food, moving in some way every day, prioritizing sleep, practicing mindfulness (she likes to call it “minding your life”), fostering close relationships and connecting with nature as much as possible. These aspirations, and the difficulty she has in consistently attaining them, are what sparked a career in Lifestyle Medicine.
Wendy has a post-master’s certificate in Wellness and Health Promotion. She developed Methodist Health System’s Employee Health Program before starting an independent integrative medicine practice in 2016. She is on the editorial board of The Integrative Practitioner Journal.
Wendy has been a Diplomat of the American College of Lifestyle Medicine since 2019. Inspired by this certification, an affiliation with brilliant colleagues and a commitment to her community of wellness pioneers, Element Primary Care was founded. Welcome to the culmination of a life’s work and a dedicated partner in your journey to a healthier you: Lifestyle Medicine | Science Made Personal.
