Meet Our Faculty and Staff

Wendy Cooley


Hi! I grew up in North Pole, Alaska, hiking and fishing, riding motorcycles and reading several books a week! As an adult I have continued in my love of reading and adventure.

I have enjoyed living in many different places: the Alaskan Artic, tropical Indonesia, down-home Mississippi, the red rocks of Utah, and, now, Nairobi, Kenya!
