A graphic designer with 16 years of creative experience, I’m a small-business owner and introvert enthusiast. I’ve also been an art director at a global PR firm, worked in marketing, non-profit and a variety of small businesses. My specialties include creating print design that tells a meaningful story and designing compelling identities for brands to help strengthen their voice as well as turning PowerPoints into powerful presentations that come to life visually and conceptually.

I received a BFA in graphic design from the University of Illinois at Chicago, with a minor in studio arts. Aside from design, you might find me enjoying sushi; spending time with my husband and children; or chasing a beagle-terrier around our tiny, century-old home near the city.

I’ve always believed that visual communication is important no matter what field or industry you’re in. Everything is better when it’s designed well, and you can often make a project say much more than it would say without design.
