But a powerhouse career was never a goal of her own. She wanted to play basketball, and become a mom. After college, she fell into sports psychology serendipitously, and her career took off. Then, a health scare put things into perspective — and set off a sea of change in her life that would lead her to have twins, move to Chicago, and land a job with the Bulls she says felt meant to be.
For this conversation, we're in Wendy's home in Chicago, Illinois, talking about finding her confidence, solo parenting, and why she always trusts her gut instinct. Make Yourself at Home with Dr. Wendy Borlabi.
