In January 08 she embarked on a journey of weight loss and that summer after seeing her first bodybuilding show was inspired by the sport.  That October Wendy entered SNBF competition at 138lbs 10%bf and won Masters and Novice.  A month later at the Pro/Amateur show, she won her open class and received her ProCard in natural bodybuilding.   Since then she has competed back in  Canada and in several southern pro events.  She also competed in the Iron Girl Triathalon last summer and through that, her transformation story was featured in several publications.  
Last year Wendy also was a founding member of at group of women called   "Iron Angels."   The group comprised of competitors as well as everyday women who wanted to become fit.  The goal was to share our stories and journey to fitness in an effort to empower and support other women in their journey and set an example of how fitness can bring balance of your body and soul back into your life.
She is now training to better herself for her next show. The main goal being to stay healthy, fit, and beat "her" last body that she put on stage.
