After graduating from Washington State University with a degree in communications, Wendy Richardson worked in advertising at Lintas Muir Cornelius Moore and PS Ltd. in New York. She left to coordinate the production and art departments on feature films, such as The Hudsucker Proxy, Forrest Gump, The Jungle Book, Indian in the Cupboard, The Fast and The Furious and We Were Soldiers. Prior to joining The Johnson Center, Wendy was a staff film accountant at Warner Brothers, where she worked on Happy Feet, The Good German, The Ant Bully, and August Rush. While living in California, she was a devoted volunteer at the Pasadena AIDS Service Center, making films for mothers with AIDS to leave to their children; she also assisted in art classes for children affected by AIDS. In addition, she produced a yearlong program, Digital Groove, through the Los Angeles School System, bringing together digital artists to mentor at-risk high school seniors. Wendy raised money for The AIDS Foundation by completing The AIDS Ride, a seven-hundred-mile annual bike ride from San Francisco to LA.

Wendy Richardson brings this same commitment and dedication to JCCHD, helping to coordinate our research efforts. Wendy works directly with families to ensure their research participation is a positive experience, as well as coordinating the logistics of data collection for clinical research studies. Often a study requires that many elements be put in place for patients sprinkled across the country - a logistical challenge and Wendy’s favorite part of her work. She shares her considerable talents and passion for Excel spreadsheets in her role as Research Coordinator.
