Wendy Nicholson

Committee Member

Wendy and her husband, Peter, moved to the desert in 2003. Wendy retired from UCLA Medical Center after 20 years as a manager in the Patient Business Services department. Her retirement didn't last long. For the last 11 years, she has been the Office Manager for a local CPA. Wendy and Peter met in their high school Drama department and Wendy went on to major in Drama in college, however once she started working in the financial field, she knew that was her calling. She still loves theatre and tries to volunteer with the local theatre groups as time permits. She's looking forward to retiring soon and being able to devote more time to S2S2S.
