Who We Are


Wendy Batdorf


Wendy joined QCCAN in May 2022 with her Golden Retriever Cody.  Volunteering with Cody inspired Wendy to add an English Cream Golden Retriever, Casper, to her family in 2023. Although he is still a puppy, Casper’s early therapy dog skills were put to the test after Cody’s unexpected passing.  Wendy is looking forward to continued training with Casper and becoming a green team to volunteer at events all over the QC area.  Wendy is a licensed Clinical Psychologist working for the Department of Veterans Affairs managing several national psychotherapy training programs.  When she is not working or volunteering, Wendy enjoys spending time with her family, running, hiking and traveling the world.
