She is the founder and CEO of The Practical Path, presenting educational programs for professional and personal intuitive development.

Her commitment to the deeper awareness and understanding of the balance between mind, body and spirit is evident in her caring and insightful consultations, and her transformative seminars and workshops. Wendie has been in private practice for twenty years, and has been teaching intuitive development and energy medicine professionally for over ten years.

Wendie’s accredited certification program, Medical Intuitive Training™, has been pivotal in helping integrative, functional and holistic healthcare professionals from every discipline to develop and optimize their innate intuitive abilities. Her trailblazing work has led to a collaborative study with University of California San Diego (UCSD) School of Medicine, out of the recognition of the increasing value of medical intuition in the medical setting and the need for scientific research.

Actively involved in spiritual studies from a young age, an early job at the Bodhi Tree, Los Angeles' seminal "new age" bookstore, gave her access to the many classics of metaphysical thought. She participated in Louise Hay's renowned, intimate living-room healing sessions supporting the Los Angeles HIV/AIDS community. This experience led her to intensive study in a variety of biofield-based wellness modalities, including Usui Reiki, Transcendental Meditation, NLP, and others.

Wendie received certification in energy medicine and graduated the intuitive, ministerial and teacher’s training programs at a noted school of metaphysics in Los Angeles. She then became a staff program instructor for over five years. Wendie received coaching certification from Coach Inc.
