An underperformer in grade school due to undiagnosed attention deficit disorder (ADD), Wendy worked hard and surpassed the expectations of everyone around her.

Early in her career, she found that she had a knack for systems and organizing, but found herself living in a totally disorganized home after several episodes of depression. She helps overwhelmed families and special needs families get organized by helping them identify what has created the disorder in their lives, and by helping them create systems so they can get back in control of their possessions and homes. Wendy also works with families like herself that are struggling with ADD, depression, PTSD and anxiety.

Jeff

Jeff Bateson

VP of Operations at Convene
Soccer Coach
High School Teacher
Soccer Community Leader

My life has centered around teaching others. I began working with Convene in 2016, helping grow the platform into what it is continuously evolving into to this day.

In 1999, I began the first 20 years of my professional life coaching soccer at all levels from youth to college. I've had the pleasure of seeing many players earn both athletic and academic awards over that time. Wins on the field are great...wins in life are the best!

The past two years have seen me transition into the classroom as a middle school and high school History and Civics teacher.

In this community you literally get the best of both of my worlds merged into one place: ministry and marketing.

My goal is to help you become the best version of who you were created to be by encouraging you to break free from limitations and unhealthy behaviors so that we can live fruit-bearing lives and reach our full potential. I will be sharing my knowledge and expertise as a communicator, faith-leader, author, and marketer! I'm so excited about this journey that we will embark upon! Let's link arms and take a stroll.

Wendy Cook

Wendy Cook

Project Coordinator of The State Implementation Grant

Intersect, Inc. is a coalition of community members representing schools, health care, faith-based organizations, and businesses that formed in 2002 to address tobacco issues within Madison County, Indiana. Funding for this coalition originated from funds through the 1998 Master Settlement Agreement between the tobacco companies and 48 states. After several years, the coalition began to see the need to expand the focus to include alcohol and other drug prevention. The coalition obtained its not-for-profit status in 2004 and became incorporated in 2005. Currently, the coalition operates from two major grants, the Indiana Tobacco Prevention and Cessation Agency (ITPC) and the Federal Drug Free Communities Grant.

All of the trials and challenges Matthew has encountered in his career have ultimately led him to his purpose and mission in life.

As a counselor, Matthew is devoted to helping those around him by sharing life experiences and imploring others to use these lessons for future decision making.

We all have a unique story that is unlike anyone else’s and these stories offer unique perspectives on situations extending beyond your own life path. Matthew believes that by sharing life experiences and knowledge with the community around you, there is always the opportunity simultaneously take on the role of student and teacher. Your experiences are a catalyst for conversation and a gateway into new relationships and opportunities.

Matthew created Convene Communities for this exact purpose- to share, learn, and grow from real life experiences.
