Chief Disruptor and an Affirming Aesthetics Practitioner

Wendy

Hi! My name is Wendy Wink, and I am a Chief Disruptor and an Affirming Aesthetics Practitioner at HI SIS. I have been in my profession for working at the intersection of business operations and personal wellness for six years, the last three moving from mental health into the wider scope of public health years. I am passionate about health equity, human rights, and life-long learning. I enjoy helping people maximize their potential and believe everyone should have the opportunity to become their authentic selves and fall in love with whatever that may be. I enjoy writing, reading, learning new things, and stumbling into unimagined opportunities in my free time. I am excited to continue pursuing a bigger, better, wider-spread, and well-known practice as we create big, small, but always meaningful changes in people’s lives.
