As a child she was the victim of sexual abuse by her father and, at the same time, abandoned by her birth mother. Over the years, Wendy developed strategies for healing that allowed her to break down the walls of hurt and pain and eventually learn how to forgive. She shares how to embrace happiness, experience joy, and live a fulfilled life without hatred. She learned how to go from victim to victorious and her mission is to help others do the same.  Dean is a noted author, philanthropist, community activist and businesswoman who has dedicated her life to the betterment of our community.
