Email Wendy

Wendy has lived in Seattle for 23 years, with a short stint in L.A. Most of this time has been spent in District 4. She currently resides in the Ravenna neighborhood with her husband and her teenage daughter, a proud Seattle Public Schools student. Wendy was born and raised in Alaska but continues to disappoint her friends with her lack of outdoorsy-ness. Fortunately, they do not hold this against her. Wendy’s history is in journalism, with most of her years spent working in public radio, producing programs at KUOW and for Marketplace/American Public Media. She has extensively volunteered in her daughter’s schools on the PTA and as president of an athletic booster club. Wendy will be leading constituent concerns and communications for Councilmember Rivera and looks forward to continued involvement in her community and city. Fun fact about Wendy, she was a finalist for the Great American Baking Show.
