Experienced entrepreneur and pioneer in the conscious consumer movement, Wendy is founder and CEO of 3P Partners. A Certified B Corporation, 3P provides a mobile engagement platform as a service that leverages the power of a social good currency (Positive Impact Points or PIPs), smart tools, and games to track and reward daily life choices that deliver personal and planetary benefit.

PIPs-worthy actions are promoted on PIPs Rewards, a mobile app and a web page, typically through partnering institutions such as universities, businesses and municipalities. Wendy is also creating a public foundation called PIPs Education Fund that will match every dollar a student directs toward their ‘stay in school’ expenses.

She has co-authored numerous books, including the award-winning True Food: 8 Simple Steps to a Healthier You (National Geographic, 2009).
