Wendy Musgrave was appointed to serve on the Commission on the Status of Women in 2018. A native of Newell, Iowa, Wendy now resides in Johnston with her husband and two daughters. Since 2017 Wendy has been serving as the Pastor of Centennial United Methodist Church in Altoona. Wendy has a BFA in Graphic Design from Iowa State University and a Masters of Divinity from the Iliff School of Theology in Denver, Colorado. Before serving as a pastor of a church, Wendy was a freelance publication designer and photographer.

Wendy is the mother of two daughters and has been a stay-at-home mom, a working mom, and a graduate student mom at various times since the birth of her first daughter in 2004. Because of this experience, the issues facing women and particularly mothers of young children are of interest for Wendy. In her role as clergy, a traditionally male dominated role, Wendy knows the value of the work for equal opportunity for women. She appreciates the women who have paved the way before her, and she aspires to continue the important work of inspiring and empowering the next generation of women leaders.
