Wendy R. Hobbs, President of Wenric, graduated from Martin Methodist College in Pulaski Tennessee, where she earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Human Services. Wendy’s life experiences have uniquely prepared her for a leadership role in a company like Wenric. Wendy was born with arthrogryposis, a rare congenital disorder that affected her joint and muscle development principally in her hips, knees, and feet. Although she uses a wheelchair primarily, Wendy defied the odds and has limited ability to walk with an assistive device. She has experienced firsthand the difficulties associated with a physical limitation. She strives to overcome her own barriers and desires to help others do the same.
