Creative Director. Dog mom. Hot yoga lover.
I’ve been successfully building brands, driving traffic, and maximizing conversions for companies for almost ten years. I truly enjoy determining the best way to convey a brand’s value proposition to its intended audience through a balance of creative and strategic methods.
Having worked on multi-disciplinary teams throughout my career, I bring a collaborative spirit to every new project. With a background in fine arts and advertising and a focus on digital, I’m also fluent in developer speak. This helps my design and engineering teams seamlessly translate our work from concept to launch.
