My Experience

Wendy is Associate Professor in the Faculty of Education at the University of Waikato where she is Associate Dean Academic. Previously a counsellor educator, she now teaches Restorative Practices in Education at postgraduate level via full online delivery, and papers in lifespan development at undergraduate level.

As Associate Dean she is responsible for major academic developments, academic programme planning and quality assurance of the Faculty’s qualifications.  She is a co-author with Lise Claiborne of a popular text, Human development: Family, Place, Culture, which is in its 4th edition.

Wendy first became involved in the development of restorative practices with the University of Waikato Restorative Practices Development Team in 1999, and has held the kaupapa close ever since. She has published widely in the field of restorative practice and has an international reputation for her work in this area. She was the Chair of the Education Panel for the recent Roundtable on Restorative Justice held at Victoria University of Wellington in October 2014 under the joint auspices of the Chair of Restorative Justice, Professor Chris Marshall, and the University of Waikato.
