Meet Wendy

“I am a woman with a mind that never sleeps, a curiosity that never ends and an appetite for life.”

I just love the creatives. I’m in awe of them, in fact. I don’t care if the medium is oil or acrylic, malt or rye, juniper or stone, I just love the process of one that can coax a seemingly simple idea or spice into a two-ton sculpture or complex flavor. I’m also in awe of the spaces and places where we draw our inspiration to create, play, relax….or simply connect.

If you have ever enjoyed viewing a piece of public art, theatre performance or visit to a historic site in Snohomish County, I’ve probably had my fingerprint on it. I’ve been lucky to have been able to create amazing cultural opportunities during my twenty-year career as the manager of the Snohomish County Arts Commission, Historic Preservation Commission and tourism division.

Now, my day job has me amplifying messages for companies large and small. But I still have my finger on the pulse of what’s trending. My husband Matt and I travel by bike, car, and foot to experience micro-adventures, scenic day trips, and stay-cations to meet and greet the amazing creatives that we’ll introduce you to.  Have a suggestion or want to work with me?
