Wanda is retired from the Advanced Reactor Development Division of Westinghouse Hanford Company in Richland, Washington. She has 20 years of experience in nuclear engineering disciplines, design, construction, acceptance testing, startup, nuclear safety, and operation of the Fast Flux Test Facility.

Wanda is a SWE Life Member.  She was recognized as a SWE Distinguished New Engineer in 1985 and named a SWE Fellow in 1998.  Wanda was an active member and past president of the Eastern Washington Section.

Wanda has received numerous awards including the McCall Life Pattern Award for women in re-entry in 1977 and the American Nuclear Society National Public Communications Award in 1988.
