WENDY L. ALDER
Sr. Project Coordinator

Wendy has coordinated design projects of all kinds. Her background includes everything from large holiday mall installations, storefront merchandising and wall display, styling, and real estate staging to the minutely detailed production of corporate photography.  Project-driven and detail-oriented, she pulls together all the elements, managing timetables, budgets and people. Combining this with her creative design experience, she takes pleasure in bringing Shannon Leigh projects successfully to completion. Wendy has a Visual Communications degree from the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising, San Francisco, and a BA from Franklin College of Indiana.

“It feels great to oversee a project and complete it properly, accurately and under budget, with all elements included.”
