I realized I wanted to be a designer while I was a member of my high school yearbook staff. Only juniors and seniors were allowed to join, but I persuaded the advisor to let me join as a sophomore. For three years I worked as a staff member and realized I loved conceptualizing ideas and seeing them come to fruition. I was hooked and have been slinging text and images together ever since.
My background includes extensive experience in print and digital for mission-based organizations, education and curricula companies, book publishers, media groups, and the spa and wellness industry. Most recently I freelanced for a Silicon Valley tech company where I designed 22 yearbook themes and prepared them in their online yearbook app for use by schools all over the country (and coming soon to Australia). I've also branded an international non-profit, and dipped my toe into the political realm by designing digital ads for a progressive political campaign in Florida. I recently jumped headfirst into the world of video editing and animation because I love learning. Other interests include obsessing over the care of my ever-growing plant collection (happy plant lady here!), playing video games, and decorating cookies for fun (cookiesbybrookies).
My true passion lies in working for a company that is committed to making positive change in our world, no matter what form that may take. My extensive experience has granted me a wealth of knowledge in many areas of design, so I am open to many different scenarios for employment or freelance.
