"Wendy is awesome! Knowledgeable, kind, patient. A true leader." – 2017 alumni UBC Cuba traveller
"Wendy was excellent – she has so much knowledge to share about Cuba and in particular, the agricultural practices and farm-to-market information. There is no way we would have been able to glean this much (and type) of information travelling on our own." – 2017 alumni UBC Cuba traveller
