"Wendee is AMAZING!! From the first time we spoke, and throughout the process of working together, she was approachable, flexible, and responsive. She did a great job emceeing 2 programs for the same client (they loved her so much the first time, they asked her back for another program 6 months later!) Wendee was great at preparation and following the script but always brought her own personality and flare to each task. A true professional and fun to work with to boot, I cannot recommend her enough! A true star! Thanks for being amazing Wendee! Can’t wait to work together again!!"
