She coordinated several film festivals including one for the Tucson Women’s Cable Consortium. For many years she worked at Casa Video, sharing her love and knowledge of film.
Wyatt was an animal rights activist and worked on several political campaigns including those of Meredith Little, Carmine Cardamone, and John Kromko.
