Areas of Expertise
Wendy has devoted her career to social and environmental improvement through community-based projects and initiatives. She leads Page’s Civic/Community/Culture sector and oversees civic and academic projects. Wendy joined Page with 10 years of architectural experience with public projects, 8 years as a facilities owner’s representative, and 4 years in city planning.
While in public service, Wendy implemented the US Green Building Council’s LEED rating system for City of Houston capital projects. She also helped implement alternative project delivery methods for City projects which advanced goals for sustainable community assets available to all citizens.
Her favorite projects involve giving new life to existing buildings (using their embodied carbon) for the public: the Robinson-Westchase Neighborhood Library Renovation and the restoration of the Harris County Jury Assembly Building, both with Page; and the green restoration of four historic libraries with City of Houston. As the daughter of a Landscape Architect, she enjoyed bringing public parks back to life while managing the City's Parks to Standard program with Page's Jeff Bricker.
Wendy believes that improving the civic environment requires civic participation, which has been the focus of her work to strengthen the architectural industry in Texas. She has served as the Vice President for Advocacy for Texas Society of Architects (TxA) and other past TxA positions include Chair of the TxA Government Affairs Committee, Executive Trustee of TxA Architects Committee, and Chair of the Advocacy Houston Advisory Committee. She also was a member and eventual President of the Architecture Center of Houston (ArCH) Foundation Board. Prior to that, Wendy served as the Public Relations Member of the AIA Houston Board.
