I have loved design for as long as I can remember. When I was younger I loved flipping through home layout catalogs and planning my own (future) house plans. I had big dreams of becoming an architect. While that didn't exactly pan out, I am exactly where I am supposed to be.
Graphic design is everything I love about design, and not as much math!
During the week, I am the Graphic Design Manager at a wine and liquor distributor in Connecticut. In my free time, I help small business owners and individuals turn their ideas into printed pieces to empower their brand or event. From idea to the finished design, I assist clients to find their moment of impact through creative design and ambition to make a difference in the lives of others through her work.
When I am not designing, I am hanging out with my pup, Lexi, or volunteering and advocating for The Crohn's & Colitis Foundation.
