Wendy has numerous years working in the mental health field with all ages in a variety of settings. Her passion has been to promote mental wellness by working not only in the field but in an academic setting as an assistant director and professor in a doctoral program training future healthcare leaders in behavioral health.
A part of setting the standard for future leaders is reviewing future publications, dissertations, and research proposals and projects for students. This everyday opportunity allows Wendy to stay current on mental health research and keep a pulse in the field.
Dr. Boring-Bray has an undergraduate degree in psychology with a minor in criminal justice; a masters degree is in counseling; and a doctorate in behavioral health from Arizona State University. She graduated with honors as a member of Phi Kappa Phi.
Dr. Boring-Bray has been an advocate for mental health wellness for several years and is still active in the field. Her vision for mental health would be one of no stigma and accessibility for all regardless of income or insurance. She believes that when the world starts to view mental health care as self-care rather than reactionary care, the stigma will be gone and individuals will no longer be in fear of reaching out for help.
