Wendy Ryan, Director of Membership, CMA Los Angeles

Wendy is a brand development and content strategist with a passion for developing and delivering compelling, engaging, and fun experiences for kids, families, and fans of all ages.

She has championed brands and stories ranging from Naruto and Pokémon to Kung Fu Panda and How To Train Your Dragon, The LEGO Ninjago Movie, Lord of the Rings, The Iron Giant, and more, across home entertainment, publishing,
digital, and consumer products.

Wendy is committed to supporting and amplifying underrepresented voices and stories that create more opportunities for kids to see themselves in their heroes. When her kids argued over who was more like Fei Fei in Over the Moon, she cried.

When sheʼs not settling arguments or crying, she likes to run, attempt to make her own kombucha, and eat the sourdough bread her husband has perfected during this pandemic.
