Wendy joined the Community Water Center in June 2019 as a Community Organizer in Visalia. As a Community Organizer at CWC, she is focused on acting as a catalyst for community-driven water solutions so that all communities can have access to safe, clean, and affordable drinking water.
Wendy is from Huntington Park, Ca and holds a Bachelors of Science in Environmental Studies from the California State University, Sacramento. During her time at the university, she was an active member of the environmental student organization, was involved in restoration ecology projects, and worked alongside urban farms as a youth garden educator. Soon after, she continued her education and advocacy journey as an educator/student success coach for City Year Seattle. She is passionate about the interconnectedness of justice, history, land, water, food, education, and sustainable farming. Her lifelong journey is to disrupt the plethora of environmental injustices that exist amongst communities of color and low-income communities.
On her free time, she enjoys gardening, making food/beauty products from scratch, dancing to cumbias, deep breathing, art therapy, and creative writing.
