Sr. Graphic Designer & Project Manager
Throughout my years of experience in the workforce, I have developed the ability to wear many hats, not only as a graphic designer, but also a project manager and small business owner. Along with my creative prowess, I excel at organizing, multi-tasking, maintaining efficiency, managing project lifecycles and adapting interpersonal skills in different situations. A large portion of projects I’ve worked on have come out of the biotech, sports, education and aerospace industries. Through this time, I have forged solid relationships with several companies which has allowed for repeat business and happy clients. I have been blessed to have a career doing what I love.
