I am an experienced and curious designer with a passion for visual design excellence and a demonstrated history in both print and digital. With a strong understanding of user experience as well as space, layout, typography, photography, and brand consistency, I would love to help pave the path and help define the approach, methodologies, and frameworks as part of your digital team.
As a creative, I am constantly curious, enjoy the full process from development to execution, and view every project as a chance to learn and grow. I thrive in team environments, love to collaborate, have fantastic attention to detail, and am able to manage multiple responsibilities simultaneously.
I have 2 teenage children, and much of my free time is spent sitting on the AVHA board and coaching and/or managing my kids' hockey teams, as well as volunteering at my local church/school as Director of Digital Communications and Marketing Consultant. In those roles, I have helped them redesign their website as well as re-brand and get their social media rolling while continuing to work on marketing and lead outreach events. I also visit the classrooms of each grade at least once per year to introduce new kinds of art and design to children by leading them through projects using various mediums.
We LOVE traveling and are working on completing my daughter's goal of visiting each state by the time she turns 18 (she's 14), and we're almost halfway there! Europe is also on the list, and we hope to get back there sooner rather than later... I lived & studied in Florence, Italy from 2004-2005, and cannot wait to show them around!
