01 Who I am
I was born and raised on the Outer Banks of North Carolina (and no, my childhood was nothing like what is depicted on the TV show). After attending college at UNC-Chapel Hill, I settled in Charlotte, where I currently reside with my husband and energetic toddler.
Professionally, I have extensive experience straddling the digital and print worlds of design. I am always thinking about the user experience and the end product and am currently pursuing Google’s UX Design Professional Certificate (completion expected April 2023). I am well-versed in everything from UX design and web design to email marketing and social/digital ad campaigns. I am no stranger to the struggles of the ever-changing digital landscape and enjoy the challenge of responsive design.
In the print realm, I have created on every scale — from pocket cards and posters to billboards and bus wraps. With a background in journalism, I am passionate about distilling data-heavy content into successful infographics and following AP Style. (Death to the Oxford comma!) I also dabble in motion graphics, video editing and digital illustration.
I am experienced in both custom-coded, responsive email design as well as utilizing email marketing software such as MailChimp, Salesforce and Constant Contact.
I use Adobe Fresco on my iPad for all custom illustrations, fonts and various hand-drawn design elements.
