About Me

I’m a true midwestern girl. I was born in Illinois, grew up in Michigan, and currently live in Indiana. I frequently visit Ohio (but only for the roller coasters, because everyone in the Midwest knows that’s all Ohio is good for).

I attended Ferris State University and gained my Associates’ and Bachelors’ degrees in graphic design from the College of Business, which required that I take business classes such as economics, marketing, public relations, management and others. That experience provided me with knowledge and understanding of how businesses operate and how to best utilize marketing techniques and creative thinking to target the right people for products and services.

Since graduating college, I have worked as a designer for several agencies. I believe in being honorable and honest, hard work and dedication have lead me to where I am today, and I know that I still have a lot to learn and a burning desire to keep producing quality work for good people and for a good cause.

To put it simply, my biggest goal for my career is to help people!
