A native of Chicago, I have lived most of my life in the sunshine of Florida, the valley of southern Tennessee & now in North Georgia, only miles from Chattanooga. A writer since childhood, my interests in creating have grown into adulthood. I have worked for several newspapers, a three-network television station & a nonprofit organization celebrating excellence in education.


My most recent role as Director of Creative Design for a corporate health care support office afforded me opportunities in branding, copy-writing, content development, photography, web design wire-framing & administration, as well as large-scale event planning, staging & interior design/decorating for up to 45 locations. I ensured the overall quality of all creative work produced & oversaw vendor relations in all fields of print, design, web, apparel/embroidery, promo items, name badges, phone messaging scripts, & branded signage.

I am currently privileged to have the opportunity to seek a new position within another company that shares a similar drive for strategic creativity, a passion to grow & determination for making a difference.



I believe creativity is possible in every aspect of life, breathing in optimism, hope & remembrance. My work reflects a passion for shared experiences.


I'm a writer, a designer proficient in Adobe InDesign, a photographer, an event planner, & an interior decorator branded with type-A personality organizational skills.


I value ambition, team collaboration, initiative, & follow-through; I respect deadlines, challenges & loyalty. I'm rewarded by accomplishments.
