She worked for Interior Motives in conjunction with opening up her own Decorative Arts business where she did interior design, murals and high end finishes. Some of her private clients include Kelsey Grammer, Paul Stanley, Cher and Johanna Carson. Her unique combination of skills made her a perfect fit for all of the design shows popping up on television. Highly sought after, Wanda made guest appearances on HGTV's "Designers Challenge" and "Designing for the Sexes" before she joined the design team of HGTV's popular "24 Hour Design" as a co-host and designer.
