Wanda Ryan

FOUNDER & MANAGING DIRECTOR


Wanda brings three decades of leadership experience across multiple disciplines and businesses. In her professional capacity, she specializes in Marketing, Business Development, Sales and Public Relations.


In the early 90's, Wanda was discovered by a respected talent agency in the fashion industry. She modeled and often photographed for magazines, trade shows and other promotional opportunities.     


In her later 20's Wanda expanded her horizons with songwriting and writing short stories; storytelling became a significant part of her life. Eager to learn the art of film behind the scenes, she began her career in photography, landing her a number of successful commercial projects and ad campaigns.


As her career in the arts burgeoned, Wanda was motivated to do something very special and close to her heart. She created and founded MusicWRKS Entertainment and MusicWRKS for the Healing Heart Inc. (not-for profit) talent agencies.


Now the Founder and Managing Director of the performing arts and entertainment company Dandelions of Courage, Wanda continues to apply her astute business acumen and knowledge to ensure the success of her artists.


Her initiative and creativity allows her company to achieve outstanding results on a global level. Wanda is directly responsible for overseeing the marketing, engagement, development and agency policies of Dandelions of Courage’s important and most valuable asset – their highly respected roster of artists. 


On a personal level, her mission is to ''Unlock the potential of every talented artist,'' playing a critical role in enabling the company ''to be a successful international enterprise with compassion and innovation.


” Her commitment is to work towards positive change, to motivate and inspire others through the power of music and entertainment, while embracing unity and celebration amongst diversities and cultures worldwide.
