An inspirational person who's turned full circle, overcoming disability to become a maths teacher, lecturer, pilot and a national standard archer, held two national records and was training to represent GB when a training accident caused a severe brain injury, when struck with a discus. 11 months in hospital and years of rehab followed. After being partnered with an assistance dog, Wendy started advocacy on behalf of disabled people for better inclusion; formed a local access group, became a Vice President of IAADP, has advised the UK government on transport needs of disabled people via DPTAC, currently as Independent Disability Advisor to the Metropolitan Police. She's internationally known as an advisor on assistance dog matters. Wendy plummeted the depths of despair following her brain injury, but now is the woman about town, tirelessly representing the needs of others.
