About Wendy

Wendy Jane Carrel

Book Ambassador, Book Shepherd Wendy, at your service…

Short-form story…

I wear complementary healthcare hats.

The first is as an enthusiastic, knowledgeable book shepherd and marketing maven for award-winning wellness authors and publishers. Creating solid, long-term business foundations and bringing public awareness of remarkable client achievements domestically and internationally is my focus.  Since 2005.

My areas of expertise are mental health, integrative medicine, global health, senior care, palliative care, hospice, and end-of-life planning and companioning.

My other passions are work on occasion as an international health journalist and senior care consultant for Chile, Ecuador and Mexico. I write and speak about options abroad for North Americans who cannot afford high costs of assisted living, Alzheimer’s care, medical care, or long-term health care insurance at home for themselves or their parents.
