Wendy supervises daily ticketing operations and subscription processing for the Orchestra and the Sarasota Music Festival events. She earned a Bachelor of Arts in Theatre Arts Education from Mars Hill College and a Master of Fine Arts in Theatre Management from Florida State University.

In her free time, Wendy likes to catch up on the required reading list books that she wasn't able to get to in school.

“I was fortunate to grow up in and around theatre, dancing and music. I’m not sure that I know of any other way of life. I am proud that I can support the arts, and especially the Sarasota Orchestra, as my career. ”
