Hi! I am a graduate from the Gwen Frostic School of Art at Western Michigan University. I earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts specializing in Graphic Design in 2009. Soon after, I moved to the east coast to start my career. I quickly found internships and contract freelance positions in New York City and the surrounding New Jersey area. Then I landed my first full-time position in lower Manhattan as a Junior Designer, and after only a few years of working there I moved up into a Senior Designer role.
From there I worked full-time as the Senior Designer/Brand Manager for Zoku, LLC in the NYC metro area—Hoboken, New Jersey. Every experience has been beneficial in learning and advancing my design skills to further my career as a designer. I relocated back to Michigan with my husband and now work at Eversight—a nonprofit. I am the sole designer in the marketing department for a company of about 200 people. I manage design projects across all 5 affiliates where I’ve had opportunities to design community based materials and event design.
In my free time my husband and I travel a lot out of the country and I enjoy experiencing the adventures of new cultures, food, and art—which help inspire my designs. Thank you for visiting my site and I hope you enjoyed reviewing my work!
