Wanda N. Colon, TLC's "Home Made Simple"

If you think it’s impossible to succeed in more than one career at a 
time, you haven’t met Wanda N. Colón

As one of the most prominent Latina personalities on cable television, she is currently seen as  host and designer on the popular TLC program “Home Made Simple.” The third season of the show finds Colón traveling to Washington D.C. and  Atlanta, bringing a spirited enthusiasm and common touch into a new  private home every week.  But when she’s not appearing on the air, she’s in Los Angeles, maintaining an impressive list of private 
clients for her own design firm, creating her own artwork, and, most  recently, producing her own short film.

The daughter of Puerto Rican immigrants and raised in Reading, 
Pennsylvania, Colón grew up with a strong work ethic and sense of 
family that drove her to pursue her passions from an early age.  
Fascinated with the world of theatre as both a designer and an 
actress, she worked her way through college as a bank manager before 
deciding that she had the determination and skill to pursue a life in 
the arts.

Relocating to California, Colón continued to hone her acting skills in 
classes while finding her design skills were in demand – first in 
commercial and film production work, and then designing for private 
clients, including Cher and Kelsey Grammar.  With her passion for 
local artists and materials that reflect local culture and history, 
Wanda’s easy-going personality and careful attention to the needs of 
her clients made her a natural for the camera, and she found herself 
designing and appearing on a number of shows on HGTV, including the 
popular “Designer’s Challenge,” “Designing for the Sexes,” and “24 
Hour Design
.”   That has lead to the stint on “Home Made Simple” and a 
new career as one of the most visible Puerto Rican-Americans on TV.

Recently, Colón has expanded to include spokesperson in her resume, 
appearing in an infomercial for Body By Jake and signing on with 
Febreeze.  She’s also scheduled an upcoming USO tour to visit troops 
in Japan, Korea, Guam, and Okinawa, and recently starred in and 
produced a short film “Salt,” based on her own screenplay.  The 
Spanish-language short is currently being circulated to film festivals.
