Major Achievements: With a bachelor’s degree in environmental design from the N.C. State University School of Design, Ms. Wood, a native North Carolinian, started off her career in New York with Jim Sant' Andrea Productions. She art-directed and designed sets in Manhattan for such companies as IBM, American Express, TWA, Nissan, Isuzu, Mattel and Toyota.

From New York, her career led to Los Angeles where she began a career as an illustrator in the film business. Her first job at MCA/Universal named Ms. Wood as associate producer and earned her Directors Guild of American card directing stunts and second unit. With more than 25 Hollywood productions as art director and production designer (International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees Local 800 & IATSE Local 790) under her belt including BEACHES, PRETTY WOMAN, BACKDRAFT, MR. SATURDAY NIGHT, HEAT, 10 THINGS I HATE ABOUT YOU and HONEY, WE SHRUNK OURSELVES, Ms. Wood’s artistic visions clearly raise the bar in the world of environmental design.

Recently, Ms. Wood designed and art-directed themed and interior environments for the Warner Bros. Movie World at Yas Island in Abu Dhabi with Thinkwell's theme-park division in Los Angeles. Her responsibilities included collaborating with architectural firms in designing themed and hospitality environments.
