I am a seasoned graphic designer with a background in advertising and publications, as well as production management and communications. Beginning my career in retail advertising, I moved on to publications for a large non-profit. Going back to my roots in advertising I worked at the Bomstein Agency, one of DC's top advertising agencies at that time, as a graphic designer and then a production and traffic manager. The next few years I had the luxury of freelancing while raising a family. I then landed at my alma mater, the Holton-Arms School, designing an array of marketing materials, a magazine, and collateral, providing graphics for our website, writing web stories and articles, managing social media, taking photographs, and advising and teaching for the yearbook. Wearing many different hats in my job as the Design and Production Manager at a private school has allowed me to enhance my skills, not only as a graphic designer, but also as a photographer, writer, project manager, and teacher.


My experience as yearbook adviser for the past 6 years is one of the most rewarding times of my career. Teaching students about design, fonts, color choices, InDesign, and seeing them get excited about the creative process reignites my passion for graphic design every year. Overseeing all the moving parts of production from assigning jobs to students, making deadlines, selling ads, managing school photos, editing copy, and proofing pages challenges my management skills.

I have a solid foundation of design, typography, color theory, branding, and printing processes with advanced skills using Adobe InDesign, Illustrator, and Photoshop. Other proficiencies include Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, and Publisher, Google Docs and Slides, Veracross school information system, and Finalsite CMS. I am creative and detail-oriented (perhaps to a fault!), meet my deadlines (always), remain flexible for the unforeseen (easygoing), enjoy collaboration with colleagues (very social), and value learning new skills (it makes my day to learn something new).


Now I am ready for my next creative endeavor.
