I began designing in 1999, back then my designing consisted of birth announcements, birthday invitations, greeting cards, and scrapbooks. Now my paper and glue have been replaced with a computer and a mouse. In 2010 I began designing websites for bloggers and decided that design was a career path I wanted to pursue. In 2013 I entered the Web Design and New Media program at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco.

I currently reside in Contra Costa County in California with my husband of 24 years, Jim, our 18-year-old son, 7-year-old daughter and adorable dog. When I’m not designing you can find me volunteering at our local church, my daughter’s school or with the Girl Scouts. I also enjoy reading, Netflix binge-watching, family adventures around California and my daily Starbuck run.
