About Wendy Taddeucci:
Wendy Taddeucci is a lifestyle coach for caregivers whose exhaustion, worry, and walking on eggshells makes them crabby toward their spouses. They are taking on more tasks & responsibility, and their anger keeps them in a negative place.
Wendy knows the detriment to caregivers of not taking care of themselves, unfortunately, through her father’s experience of taking care of his mother to the extent that he ignored symptoms he was experiencing and not going to the doctor until it was too late.
Wendy also experienced looking through the lens of caregiving through her mother caring for her in-laws, husband, and parents and finally caring for Wendy’s stepfather.
Wendy has been care-deciding (and at times caregiving) for her 86-year-old mother over the past 9 years.
Through her coaching, Wendy works with caregivers who want their relationship with their spouse to be more of what it was, to have more energy to focus on their physical health, and not to be on top of everything.
Wendy holds a Certificate in Life & ADHD Coaching from Coach Approach for Organizers. Wendy is also a former Certified Professional Organizer.
Outside of her passion for coaching, Wendy loves traveling with her husband, Steve, to whom she’s been married for 28 years. In addition, Wendy enjoys reading a good biography and is an avid Gilmore Girls fan.
