According to Breaker PR the firm that represents Ms. Wannop, she recently relocated to the West Coast to work on the Emmy-winning show. As a maven in her field, Kim knows the virtues of hard work in realizing one’s dreams. Since graduating from Philadelphia University, where she studied Interior Architecture, she has arduously worked her way through the industry to become one of the most in-demand Set Decorators in Tinseltown.

Her credits include “Bones”” (Emmy Nomination), Parks and Recreation”, “Spoils of Babylon”, “Love” and “Veep”(Emmy Winning). She has also been nominated for three ADG Awards. How’s that feel for Wannop? Here’s her quote:

“I feel completely overwhelmed! The support from my peers tonight has been truly incredible! It’s a dream to win an Emmy and I’m thankful that my colleagues voted to make it come true! Thank you!”

Wannop’s comments regarding being a woman in the TV industry: “I think it’s tremendous for our industry to acknowledge women’s work. I hope it is inspiring to future generations. I know seeing female names on the credits as Set Decorators growing up inspired me. I hope I do the same for the next generation.”
