My passion for work in communications and marketing began in college when I served as editor and designer of a campus newsletter. That project sparked my lifelong interest in how we communicate with each other visually about everything from business endeavors to educational missions to nonprofit fundraising.
I have worked for nonprofit organizations over the past 15 years in communications and community relations. I enjoy exploring how graphic design and communication can inspire a mission for organizations. A deep connection to furthering mission has always contributed to my creative work.
In my capacity as a communications coordinator, I managed the development and production of annual reports, newsletters, brochures and other print collateral. I also designed marketing and fundraising materials, and created electronic communications (e-newsletters, media blasts, Facebook and digital media branding).
Before entering the nonprofit world, I studied English Literature at the University of Michigan at Ann Arbor and Muhlenberg College in Pennsylvania. I currently live in the Green Mountains of Vermont with my husband and sons, rescue hounds, rabbits and poultry. When I'm not at my computer, you can usually find me in my garden or watching a soccer or baseball game.
