I am one of those people always turning their head sideways to see a different angle, finding inspiration in random objects, and truly believing everyone has creative talent in some way. As a self-taught designer, the past twenty-five+ years designing has been an amazing journey doing what I love for my professional career.
With seven years art directing within advertising agencies and eighteen in a corporate environment, where I have worked remotely for over fifteen consecutive years, I have proven I can be successfully dedicated and focused.
I have enjoyed creating designs for a wide range of brands in retail, home goods, real estate, health, financial, food, fashion, engineering, promotional and non-profit. I have an extensive understanding of many additional creative initiatives including experience in creative project management, workflow process development, and product management. I also have a proven track record in providing end-to-end oversight in creative packaging production.
I am collaborative and compassionate, I work hard and I care – about my clients, my work, and my team. I have been involved in leading employee DE&I initiatives and communications. As a volunteer for non-profits, I share my love of designing by providing graphic design support to organizations through donation of my time. I have worked with several organizations who support cancer research and patients, such as The Gathering Place, Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, and St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
Beyond the design, I am an artist, post-it note junkie, and lover of puns, nature and all genres of music. I enjoy finding time to draw, paint and create with acrylic, watercolor, and mixed media.
