What do I do at Team Corona Busters?

A little bit of this and little bit of that.

Favorite Food:

Sushi.

Hometown:

Born and raised in Ojai, California

Favorite Vacation Spot:

Bali, and she hopes to go one day. Haha.

Why Team Corona Busters?

There are those that panic in times of need, and then there are those that seek to help those in need. She knew she had to find a group of people doing something to help others during this time. While we know these masks won’t stop the COVID-19 virus from getting through, it is some layer of protection. Something’s better than nothing at this time and hopefully we fill that void between now and when they get more supplies in.

One Fun Fact:

Growing up, Wendy wanted to be a lumber jack.
