For the past 23 years my day job has been in the nonprofit community. From office manager to director of development, from special events to marketing, and from film festivals to capital campaigns, I enjoyed working with talented colleagues to advance organizational missions. All the while, my love of putting ideas into images grew and now I am happily learning more about design, illustration, and art every day.

In my personal life, history, genealogy, writing, and design take up any free time not spent with my husband and daughter. Nachos, coffee, cats and dogs also rate high on my priority list.
