Connect with Wendy
Wendy brings a variety of talents to the table at Neuger Communications Group. She is a skilled coder, designer, planner, organizer and video producer – skills that she uses to help clients tell their stories. Wendy is passionate about connecting different media together to create the best possible work for clients. Her interests in strategy and data, paired with her eye for design, make her a valuable asset to our digital team, and when she contributes to office brainstorming sessions her ideas are creative and boundary-pushing.
Wendy approaches digital projects with a strategic mindset – driven to sort and visually present information in a way that ensures that the user will find what he or she is looking for and come away with a better understanding of the topic at hand. She also holds a firm belief that effective projects integrate many parts to provide a powerful, interactive experience – an approach that matches that of the entire team at Neuger Communications Group.
Wendy is a graduate of St. Olaf College, in Northfield, Minnesota, with a degree in German and interdisciplinary fine arts with an emphasis in visual arts. She enjoyed connecting different areas of study just as she enjoys connecting different media now. Prior to joining Neuger Communications Group, she worked for the TRiO programs – federally funded educational services for disadvantaged students.
Wendy lives in Northfield with her husband, Kevin, and their companion rabbit. The three of them have a mutual respect for good cilantro. She also finds time to take in films, play bassoon with the Cannon Valley Regional Orchestra, participate in community theatre (where she’s co-starred with colleague Elin Odegaard), try out new vegan recipes, and serve as an executive board member for the Northfield Arts Guild.
I’m on the hunt for: Animal friends. Whenever I am at a party, I usually get shy, but if a cat wanders by, I’ve found a new best friend.
I cheer for: Nonprofits and organizations like Girls Who Code, which focus on educating young women about careers in technology.
Favorite office tradition: The ice cream dance party, which is a sporadic afternoon tradition. Sometimes it becomes clear that everyone could use a treat, so we either go to Hogan Brothers to get ice cream, or bring in another type of snack. Long ago, I decided to dub these occasions “ice cream dance parties,” which, as fate would have it, rarely feature dancing, and sometimes don’t even involve ice cream.
