Wendy brings to this role her personal experience as a Senior Fellow from 2018-2019, a passion for protecting the environment, and significant program management experience from her previous job. Prior to joining CLF, Wendy practiced law for over a decade – first as an associate at Ropes & Gray LLP and then as in-house counsel and chief compliance officer at a regulated investment advisory firm, where she advised on regulatory matters and was responsible for developing and implementing the firm’s compliance program.
Wendy earned her J.D. from Harvard Law School, and a M.A. in Sociology and B.A. in Economics from Stanford University. Outside of work, she can often be found with her kids out in nature, playing board games, or trying out ethnic recipes from around the world.
