Wendi has been a Firefighter with Cal Fire since 1995 and has spent the last 12 years as an Engineer serving the Perris community. Just recently she promoted to Fire Captain and is now serving the community of Rancho Mirage.

Wendi recently found a lump in her breast and armpit and after going in for tests and a biopsy, on Friday January 19th she got a call from her doctor that would change her life forever.

Wendi has spent over half of her life serving her community as a firefighter, but her service goes beyond that. She has helped the homeless for many years and is also part of a peer counseling support team which helps those who suffer from PTSD, stress and emotional issues.

Wendi is an AMAZING and loving daughter, sister, aunt, fire sister and friend to so many. Her smile lights up a room and her loving heart is the calm in any storm. She makes us all want to be a better person and she deserves to feel the love and support from everyone around her.
