I'm lucky to love what I do.

(and the people i get to do it with.)
introduction

Some people say I'm...

Energetic, Enthusiastic, Passionate, Type-A (I call it “organized”), Assertive, a Music-Lover (with a Spotify addiction), a DMB Fanatic, a Dog Lover, a Foodie

Which results in...

An animated team-player with creative problem solving skills. A strategic, big-picture thinker ready to tackle the next project. A strong sense of pride in and passion for my work. An exceptionally organized and detail-oriented designer. A go-to resource for the latest in indie rock. A collector of live DMB shows that date back to 1990. A devoted mom of a chocolate lab named Juno. An advocate for ethical eating and a regular supporter of local restaurants.

Let's chat.
corporate and higher ed marketers:

I speak your language, respect your brand and design results.

I’m a freelance designer with corporate sensibility, corporate hours, and great-big capabilities. I’m enthusiastic, fun and direct. I like being part of your team, making your job easier, and helping your organization grow. I’m especially fond of higher education and corporate clients who love brand standards as much as I do. Truth be told, identity manuals make me giddy!

My career has been spent working in, or with, marketing departments and agencies. Why? Because I love the structure, the energy, and the camaraderie. So whether it’s just you steering the ship, or you have an in-house creative team supporting you, I can seamlessly help you reach your design goals.

paying it forward

I work 10-4, Mon-Thurs. What about Fridays?

You’re not going to hear from me on Fridays because I’m out volunteering with my pup, Juno, for the therapy dog programs at Passavant Hospital and Pittsburgh International Airport. So when we work together, you’re fueling our philanthropy and helping us bring smiles and relief to awesome humans.
