I reside in Fort Wayne with my husband, Tony, and two children, Sam and Stella. I take pride in my local community, with special interest in the arts, education, the revitalization of our downtown, and our city's trail system. I have served on Boards and Advisory Councils and currently volunteer for various local organizations. I am also a huge proponent for supporting local business.
I look forward to utilizing my skillset to provide professional design and marketing services for your company.
I've loved art for as long as I can remember. It was my passion growing up and what I pursued in college. Born and raised in Fort Wayne, Indiana, I received a bachelor of arts degree from Saint Francis College in commercial and fine art (with a minor in English) and a master of arts degree in fine art from the University of Saint Francis.
Before working full-time as a freelance graphic designer, I worked in the graphic design and marketing industry at a local college for over 12 years. I designed all print pieces as well as wrote and edited copy, collaborated on the overall strategic marketing plan, planned and hosted events, shot event photography, and much more.
Since that time, I have done a variety of freelance graphic design and marketing work for local non-profits, independent artists, government agencies, and real estate investors to name just a few. When all is said and done, I have been honing my skills as a designer for over 20 years, and most recently received Gold and Silver Honors from the Advertising Federation of Fort Wayne.
I accepted the opportunity to complete the Young Leaders of Northeast Indiana's Leadership Institute and the Leadership Fort Wayne program in our community. I have been extremely blessed to have received numerous awards and accolades in my profession including Gold and Silver Medallion Awards for the National Council for Marketing and Public Relations.
