Hello…nice to meet you! I am a creative director and graphic designer with more than 14 years experience in publication design, corporate communication, and product development. I have an undergraduate degree in English/Writing from George Mason University and a M.A. in Publications Designs from the University of Baltimore. I enjoy working on all kinds of projects from branding to book covers to annual reports, as well as website front-end design and e-book development. I am thrilled to be working at National Geographic as the managing art director in the children’s book division. I’ve been a creative director for Eagle Publishing and Regnery Publishing, as well an art director for America’s Community Bankers, BlueHouse Publishing, National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts, and the Cato Institute.  My work has been recognized by the Book Industry Guild of New York, Washington Book Publishers, Art Directors Club of Metropolitan Washington, Silver Inkwell Awards, and Graphic Design USA.

In my freetime, I work as a freelance design consultant. I love to craft custom stationery and invitations for various online companies, including Minted and Snapfish. When I’m not designing or golfing or gardening or decorating, I spend my days in Northern Virginia with my husband and son and chasing our two energetic dogs.

Please feel free to drop me a line to say hello or if you are interested in more information on custom design projects. Thanks for visiting!
