Marketing & Communications Coordinator
Junior Achievement of Central Carolinas
As the Marketing & Communications Coordinator, my primary role is graphic design while also supporting in all marketing efforts for JA. Originally from Southern California, I attended UCLA and graduated with a BS degree in Sociology/Social Psychology.
Those who know me are often surprised I didn't major in fine arts. Although my creative passion was prominent early, I didn't pursue it professionally until I returned to school to obtain an AAS degree in Advertising & Graphic Design in 2018. For me, every design challenge is an opportunity to tell a story. I am a good listener, with an investigative mindset. I use what I learn from relationship building to guide my research and make meaningful connections. Ultimately, I care about the message and take personal satisfaction in creating visual stories that are meaningful, engaging and effective.
I relocated to join my husband in Charlotte in 1994, where we have raised our daughter and son. When I am not focusing on my family and/or a design project, I enjoy photography and binge-watching a HBO, Hulu or Netflix series.
