It’s believed that Wendi got her passion for sports from her father, Wayne Nix.
From what we gathered, Wayne Nix was a high school football coach and athletic director. Wendi once divulged that her earliest memories are in and around a football field with her Dad.
“…I am six years older than my brother, so as a young coach with only one kid, my Dad brought me along to practice.”
