She joined Newhouse in January 2007 as the school's first communications director. During her first year on the job, she directed communications for the Newhouse 3 dedication event featuring Chief Justice of the United States John G. Roberts in September 2007; and for the school's inaugural Mirror Awards event in June 2007. She also initiated and oversaw a complete overhaul of the school's magazine, the Newhouse Network. In 2014, she oversaw communications for the dedication of the Newhouse Studio and Innovation Center, which featured a campus visit by Oprah Winfrey. She has also handled communications for the school's Toner Prize events featuring former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton (2015) and President Barack Obama (2016).
Wendy also served as the first communications director for SU's Falk College (then the College of Human Services and Health Professions). Joining the college a year before its official opening, she built the college communications office from scratch, instituting new standards and procedures; creating new publications, a new website and a media relations program; and developing and implementing a strategic communications and marketing plan.
