I am a problem solver, bridge builder, idea communicator, and a positive force for change.
I have over 10 years of design experience in multiple applications, environments, and client relationships. From thriving in an agency environment managing corporate clients, to managing and designing for my own business and non-profit organization, I am versatile, resourceful and purposeful in every single thing I do.
Aside from graphic design, I am a blogger, hand lettering artist, dog mom, Army wife, traveler, adventurer, and crafter.
