On a personal note, Dr. Wendy is married to Dr. Mathew Gerard who is a surgeon of large animals at North Carolina State University College of Veterinary Medicine. They have three wonderful cats: Ollie, who is 3 years old and always into something; Gertie, who is 10 years old and loves to be in your lap; and Tess, who is 12 and a little prissy but definitely her mom’s cat!! In her spare time, Dr. Wendy enjoys Pilates, golf, water skiing, and visiting Australia (her husband’s homeland).
