Wendy’s affinity for design started in childhood but her career took a different route early on. Wendy graduated from the University of Puget Sound with a degree in Psychology in 1992 and previously worked in counseling, human resources, and retail sales before pursuing her passion. At the same time WPD (Wendy Phillips Design) was established, Wendy returned to school in 2014 and completed Architecture and Technical Design coursework through Olympic College.
Wendy’s first design-build project was Arrowhead followed by Woodbay in 2015. These projects included practical building experience and relationships with local artists and skilled tradespeople which laid the foundation for future + current work. Since then, Wendy has built a solid referral base from industry professionals, personal relationships and previous clients.
Professional services include kitchen + bath design, interior architectural detailing, blueprint review, space planning, 3D rendering, material specifications, color consultation, furnishings, and project management. Wendy works in tandem with architects, engineers, general contractors, carpenters, and other trade professionals.
Wendy is proficient in Chief Architect and Revit and a member of Northwest Society of Interior Designers (NWSID), Seattle Chapter, and National Kitchen & Bath Association (NKBA). Wendy is currently pursuing AKBD certification through the NKBA.
