Mandy Teefey

CEO & Co-founder

Mandy Teefey is a co-founder and CEO of Wondermind, as well as the founder and CEO of Kicked to the Curb Productions, where she has developed award winning and nominated content. Drunk with passion and fueled by drive, Mandy will use this to anchor Wondermind deeply in story because the team truly understands the value and hunger for inclusive content and the need to change the narrative on how mental health is portrayed. Mandy is best known for "Thirteen Reasons Why." She is a Patron of Women in Film and is a member of the Producers Guild of America. Mandy’s philanthropic endeavors include Alliance for Children’s Rights, mentoring youth and mental health rights. She is a national organ donation reform advocate and has been working with bipartisan congressional leaders including Congresswomen Ayanna Pressley, Katie Porter, and Cori Bush to address urgent racial justice issues to help more patients receive lifesaving transplants. On her downtime, she enjoys scavenger hunts, hanging with her family, going glamping, and being an arm couch detective.
