Wendy Jenkins is no stranger to change and adversity. As a newlywed looking forward to her next chapter, Wendy was diagnosed with a life-threatening lung condition and given two years to live without a rare and risky double lung transplant procedure. While lucky enough to match with a donor, the double lung transplant left Wendy with ongoing complex health issues, which prevented her from having children, shortened her life expectancy, and led to severe depression and PTSD.
Determined to overcome mental illness and improve her wellbeing, Wendy discovered a strong passion for neuroscience-based resilience and the way our nervous system and brain work to give us mental strength. She believes no matter what challenges and adversity you face – the way you respond is key.
More than 15 years later, Wendy is a certified resilience coach, successful entrepreneur, sought-after speaker and a strong advocate for advancing forward – not just bouncing back. A highly experienced human resources practitioner, Wendy is dedicated to empowering forward-thinking businesses to be their best through neuroscience-based resilience training and is an engaging certified Resilience First Aid Instructor.
