Wendy Manning
Executive Assistant 

Wendy is a graduate of Arizona State University with a bachelor’s of science degree in criminal justice. She joined the St. Joseph's Foundation staff in 2010 and was honored with the Acts of Humankindness Steward Award in 2017, in which Dignity Health recognizes employees who go above and beyond to share kindness with others. Wendy abides by the work motto, “FAWTSY,” something she learned while working for the Arizona Diamondbacks. She Finds A Way To Say Yes—going the extra mile to help anyone she encounters. Wendy is best-described as a “people person,” which is apparent when meeting and speaking with her.  

Wendy is married and enjoys spending time with her family as well as her two dogs, who keep her busy. In her spare time she loves to travel, attend sporting events and volunteer for numerous charities. She has been a Fiesta Bowl Ambassador for four years. In 2021, she received the Randi Knappenberger Ambassador of the Year Award, an honor bestowed upon volunteers who have enhanced the Fiesta Bowl organization through their commitment, dedication and extraordinary efforts in a variety of areas. The awards are selected based on evaluations and nominations from Fiesta Bowl volunteers, board members and staff.
