Wendy originally hails from Hong Kong and came to Britain when she was eighteen years old. Although she has lived in the UK for many years, as a native Chinese speaker who can read and write both traditional and simplified Chinese text, Wendy is comfortable working within both British and Chinese language and cultures. Wendy’s legal and notarial work has included numerous instructions involving documents for use in the People’s Republic of China, Hong Kong and Taiwan.
Wendy is also well-travelled globally, having spent time living in Germany and the Peoples’ Republic of China. As well as travelling throughout Europe, Wendy’s travels have taken her to places as diverse as the UAE, Iceland, Norway, the USA, the Caribbean, Canada, Australia, Morocco, Malaysia and, as she puts it “all the points of the compass in China”, which has helped develop Wendy’s understanding of issues that affect international clients.
Wendy came to notarial work through the traditional route, having qualified as a solicitor and specialising in real estate work (both residential and commercial) for some years.
After qualifying as a Notary Public, Wendy’s early part-time notarial practice in North London and the West End brought Wendy into contact with a diverse range of clients and instructions, both private and commercial, which she thoroughly enjoyed and which encouraged her to join Edward Young Notaries. Wendy’s cross-cultural influence shows through in the design used in her notarial seal which incorporates the dragon and the lion, these being key icons both in Chinese culture and history and the culture and history of England and Wales, where she practices.
In her spare time, Wendy is a keen traveller. She also enjoys ballroom dancing but would be the first to admit that she has two left feet.
