Team Tuesday 2020: Laura & Wendy

What do you get when you combine an Olympian/Extreme Freeskiing Champ/Mom with a Lawyer/Explorer/Mom? There’s only one answer – Team Fearless! Welcome in today’s Team Tuesday, Team #188 Laura Wanlass and Wendy Fisher!

These two are no strangers to the Rebelle. This will be Laura’s third time competing, and Wendy will be competing for the first time – but has been a media driver for the Rebelle since 2018. And stoked to say they will be piloting the first Jeep Gladiator in the Rebelle Rally! Read on about this dynamic duo now.

Current town:

Laura: Tempe, AZ
Wendy: Crested Butte, CO


Laura: Head of Global Governance Consulting at Aon, mom, explorer
Wendy: Coach/Instructor for skiing, Speaker, DJ, Mom and anything else someone encourages me to do.

How did you and your teammate meet?

Laura: We first met at Rebelle U Dunes Training before the 2018 Rebelle Rally, and have been friends ever since.
Wendy: We met at the Glamis Dunes training in 2018. I was without a vehicle and Laura let me jump in her jeep and test drive it in the dunes. We did not know each other and she was generous and easy going to let me jump in and let me attack the dunes.

Tell us about your competition vehicle. Why did you choose it to compete in?

Laura: We are competing in my 2020 Jeep Gladiator Rubicon. I love this vehicle. It’s capable and fun, and will take us everywhere we need to go in the Rally.
Wendy: We will be competing in Laura’s personal 2020 Jeep Gladiator Rubicon. Can’t wait!!!

Any other fun facts you’d like to add in?

Laura: I started a plot club after the 2019 Rebelle, and pretty much use it as an excuse to hang out and chat with other Rebelles whenever I can!
Wendy: I am really excited to officially have a teammate this 2020 Rebelle and happy Laura took me in!
