After graduating from Messiah University with a B.A. in Studio Art and Graphic Design, I worked in agency as well as in-house settings. My experience in both for-profit and non-profit sectors sparked a desire to make a difference with my career in graphic design. 
Now, I’m following my passion to support locally owned businesses, as well as nonprofits, volunteer groups, and townships working to make a difference in their community. My goal is to help worthy causes brand themselves authentically, increase their visibility, and inspire lasting customer connections.
