I'll be honest, this isn't what I set out to do. I didn't study design in college or work at a fancy design agency. Like a lot of millennials, my career path has been anything but linear. I started out as a recruiter. Then I got into marketing. I was even a community manager for a few months.

I learned new things and met new people, but my work wasn’t my passion. Then a non-profit I volunteer for asked me to redesign their website. I had created a website for a class in college so I figured, what the heck. Why not.

Turns out I have a knack for it. I created a whole new website for them and still manage it, in addition to two other ancillary websites dedicated to their main fundraising events. But I kept it on the side, just a hobby, until I found myself taking on more and more projects. I was staying up late into the night to do these websites. Why? Because I wanted to. That’s when I decided it was time to make my avocation my vocation.

And here's the great thing: Because I have never limited myself to my job description, I have accrued a variety of skills over the years, and now I can use all of them combined to help you launch or grow your brand online. Just ask me how.
