Editorial Team

Wendy Wishart

Senior Editor

Wendy can’t even remember a time when she wasn’t writing and editing in some capacity. She can write on any topic you want but considers herself to be at her best with projects that call for a comic approach. In fact, when she’s not writing, she’s working on her stand-up routine, which is getting her a lot of laughs at local comedy nights. She loves puppies, coffee and Netflix, and hates frozen pizza, cell phones, and cilantro.
