Wendy J Hoffman, CEO/Executive Director
Start Date: 2010

Wendy is the Founder and President of Operation Revamp, Inc and has worked tirelessly to establish the Veteran's Art Center and coordinate all operations.
Wendy has first hand experience with PTSD, TBI, suicide attempts and more beginning with a major trauma in her life before age 3. Following many more years of physical and emotional trauma she began recovery in 1986 when the suicide attempts, night terrors and alcohol abuse were spiraling out of control. Along with many other therapies, groups and counseling programs Wendy began making art. Through the process of exploring and creating art a massive amount of healing began to take place and major changes resulted.

While Wendy served as National President of Blue Star Mothers of America from 2009 - 2011 she attended several meetings, workshops and events nationwide addressing the hidden wounds of war. Her passion for helping the military and veterans, along with her own recovery led her to realize that most of the therapeutic programs involved sports with little in the way of arts and she held strong to her knowledge that Art is a powerful recovery resource.

With passion and vision Wendy founded Operation Revamp in 2010 for the purpose of Helping Veterans Heal.
