I’m a versatile, highly-organized and imaginative person who is proactive and fast learning, with solid experience working with creative teams including graphic designers, developers, web production, copy writers, SEO, production and marketing teams.
As the daughter of a videoographer and a paralegal, the visual and the verbal have always been intertwined. I’ve spent the last 20+ years crafting both in the private sector.
As high functioning left & right brained individual (smile!), I’m happiest when creatively contributing in an organized yet humor-filled environment.
What makes me tick? Fortunately, lots of things!
Naturally gifted with equal parts left brained (analytical) and right brained (creative), this gene-based capability has proven to be an invaluable asset throughout my professional and personal life.
I am an obsessively organized, details wrangler whose vivid imagination sparks unrealized creativity within others. Plainly stated, I bloom wherever I’m planted.
