A native Washingtonian, Wendi’s first writing award extolled the virtues of Mom, winning her a gift certificate on Mother’s Day at a local stationery store. She holds a degree in American Studies (History & Literature), and studied creative writing with J.R. Salamanca at the University of Maryland.
Wendi also trained at the Actors Studio MFA Program in New York City.
Wendi’s work—as writer, editor, and actor— is broadcast and published on multiple platforms. She won American Culture Association and Mississippi Historical Society awards for Best Documentary for Jefferson Davis, An American President (PBS).
And while it’s true that she carries a Sharpie in her bag, she has never defaced property for grammar’s sake. Semicolons are important; so is architecture.
She was a volunteer host for WRBH 88.3 FM Reading Radio for the Blind (New Orleans), German Shepherd Rescue, SPCA (Los Angeles), and for children’s literacy.

Wendi is an excellent audiobook narrator and storyteller. She is also a pleasure to work with, a quality to be treasured, and her approach to the work is totally professional. Were she still in the UK, I would be recommending her to a number of studios here. As it is, I can only urge my counterparts in the States to make her acquaintance.
As a veteran studio producer, I’ve long believed that any voice behind a microphone was only as good as the brain it was connected to. And Wendi Berman is blessed in both regards… great pipes coupled with uncanny intuition and a wicked sense of timing. Hire/book this woman now. Before your competition does.
Wendi is a highly original literary talent in her own right, as well as a sensitive, creative and skilled editor and co-writer. Any author, or anyone with a story to tell, an idea to advance or a product to sell would be lucky to have Wendi on board. Indeed, she has often given me invaluable insights into my own work.
I was so pleased to work with Wendi for the voiceover/audio version of my new book. Not only did I need an eloquently spoken voice actor, but also someone with the compassion I have for my own patients who struggle with addiction. Wendi understood the tenets of my book well enough to legitimately convey it and pronounce the medical terms too!
