Raves about Working with Wendy
Wendy is hands down the best of the best!! She helps all of us at MAKERS put on every show with ease, wit, and the best writing ever. Wendy brings the show to life by writing for the host in the host’s own voice, and she makes it look easy. We love and appreciate her endlessly.

Wendy put together a wonderful script for our Gala. We received nothing but rave reviews and raised funds over our goal, thanks in no small part to her fantastic writing. She really hit it out of the park, and it made all the difference!

For years she has written brilliant scripts and developed unforgettable creative concepts for the Glamour Women of the Year Awards, and recently, social impact videos that have broken the internet (16, 23, 35 million views and counting!). We trust Wendy to elevate any voice – from Hollywood celebs to New York media giants, to the most influential players in Washington, DC."
