Wanda was born and bred in Baltimore, Maryland. As a graduate of St. Paul's School for Girls, she then relocated to Elkins, WV to attend Davis and Elkins College. After graduating she began her career in radio at WELK in Elkins. In 1990 she moved to Sarasota, Florida to join the staff at WCTQ. Now, after living and working in Orlando and Tampa Bay, she's thrilled to call South Florida home. Her pleasures include time with her family and friends, and her pet dog and cat, Duncan and Bippy. Also, "the ongoing search for a good laugh, anything spiritual, quantum physics, discovering new music and indulging in the old, as well as performing onstage for karaoke or as a 'Drag King.'" Add to that, "dancing 'til the break of dawn" and waking every weekday morning to host Morning Edition on South Florida's NPR News Station 91.3 WLRN.
