Wanda has been working with youth for 10+ years and is now leading and supporting Friends at Friends of the Children—Portland.

Drawn to the field of helping children stems from her experience as being the eldest in her family, caring for her younger siblings and being the first to graduate from college.

Wanda’s favorite past time is watching movies with her husband and three little doggies.
