Wendy is a communications guru with a deep, deep love for creative development, marketing, copywriting, photography, and even production. With experience in a variety of professional fields including the highly regulated financial services field, Wendy came to YMC from a large regional bank where she managed marketing and creative (and even made friends with the compliance team!).
Her career took its first steps in photography, galloped into publishing, tiptoed into advertising sales, and walked confidently into marketing, which keeps her simultaneously creative and analytical. Perfect for this right-brain/left-brain split! She has also had journalistic pieces published in regional and nationally distributed publications.
A transplant to this area by way of Georgia, Virginia, North Carolina, and Tennessee, she is happiest in the Appalachians. This area feeds her passion for the handmade arts. (She may or may not have more pottery than a person strictly needs...) She’s a self-described word nerd with a special place in her heart for campfires, witticisms, clever Halloween costumes, and rubber ducky characters.
