Graphic Designer | Branding, Website Design, Branded Collateral
I’m an artistic individual with a passion for branding design. At the age of 16, I took an accelerated high school course, Art Technology – where I learned about graphic design. As a junior, I began my freelance side-hustle – creating logos, flyers and trade show graphics. After high school, I studied graphic design at Dunwoody College of Technology and accepted a position as a Graphic Designer at a large format printer in Minneapolis, MN. Shortly after, I transitioned from the print design world into website design when I took a position at a St. Paul agency that specializes in website design and inbound marketing. As a self-taught website designer, my skillset continued to expand while I studied and took courses through the HubSpot Academy. I still enjoy inbound marketing and I am able to apply what I’ve learned from HubSpot into my daily strategic branding work. I am now a freelance designer, working for Erica Powell & Co. Working for Erica Powell has allowed me to have a healthy work and personal life balance. I assist in brand design, creating visual branding pieces such as PDFs and PowerPoint presentations. Erica has an amazing team of talented hardworking women and we work together seamlessly as we brand, coach and design for our amazing clients. Today, I am a stronger brand designer and am looking forward to the great success and opportunities that I know Erica Powell & Co. will provide me.

Proud momma of my 3-year-old daughter, Kaiyah, and 1-year-old son, Elijah
Owner of two German Shorthaired Pointers named Hendrix (yes, after Jimi Hendrix), and his son, Garcia (named after Jerry Garcia)
We are concert-goers – some of the latest shows we’ve seen were Elton John, Rodger Waters, Dead and Company, and Greta Van Fleet
My husband and I love the outdoors. In the winter you’d find us strapped to our snowboards, and in the summer we enjoy discing (we made our own course at home.) We are also reef hobbyists!
We enjoy traveling and each year we go to Longboat Key, Florida to visit my in-laws.
