Wendy’s first career was being a teacher. She taught secondary school at Los Angeles Unified School District for five years. Her subjects ranged from English, History, Chemistry and Math.
Her first love was always the television media. While she was teaching, she also worked as a traffic manager at the local cable station. Eventually, she segwayed to television completely and remained active in the field for fifteen years as a cable television producer/director. She produced televised city council meetings, parades and local church services for her community. She developed her own television series, producing and directing “Musician Discoveries”, a band showcase and interview program that was in production for five years and “Coffeehouse Poetry”, a poetry reading program that lasted for one season. Wendy was also the television host of two series of programs, “Flowers by Rod” and “Class Act”. Wendy’s corporate work includes directing in-house toy commercials at Mattel and general freelance duties with small independent Hollywood Producers.
After getting married, Wendy developed “Indigoskye Bead Fashions”, a small artisan jewelry business specializing in celtic themed jewelry to be sold at highland games, celtic festivals, sci-fi conventions and jazz concerts. It was an effort to slow down the hectic pace of her life and to be with her husband more often. In 2011, Wendy received her Certificate of Gemology – SCC and is now a certified gemologist.
Currently, Wendy has published two short memoirs in literary magazines and a short regency romance on AMAZON.
