Wendy started her career at WTVF in Nashville as an associate producer while attending Vanderbilt University.
After graduating with a Human & Organizational Development/Communications degree, she decided to go back home to Dallas/Fort Worth where she was hired as an associate producer/writer at KXAS for the 6 p.m. and 10 p.m. newscasts. That job blossomed into a lot of responsibilities from night and weekend assignment editor at the Dallas Bureau to field producing at the Oklahoma City Implosion and the ever-popular Texas State Fair.
Her first on-air position was in Beaumont, TX at KBMT. She covered the court and crime beats for a little more than a year. She then moved on to KKTV in Colorado Springs where she covered national stories such as the Timothy McVeigh trial in Denver, the Jon Benet Ramsey murder in Boulder and the A-10 search near Vail. She also won the Best Single Topic News Story from the Colorado Broadcasters Association for a side bar piece on the first execution in the state in 30 years.
After a short stint at KLAS in Las Vegas, Wendy moved back home to Texas where she found a position at KFDM in Beaumont. Austin has always been a goal for Wendy and she finally achieved it when she joined the KXAN team in 1999. She reports on the Nightside, as well as serving as fill-in anchor for the morning shows and taking on the "Food For Thought" franchise.
Wendy loves to run, snow ski and like most women, loves to shop. Being that she has no family here, no pets and two plants, she also loves to spend time with friends.
