About the Designer
A 2014 alumni from Flagler College, with a BA in art and graphic design. Accepted into the BFA program through Flagler's Art & Design department, I immediately returned to receive my BFA in fine art, with a minor in illustration.

While receiving my BFA, I was the chosen candidate for an internship within the art education department at the Cummer Museum of Art and Gardens, located in Jacksonville, Florida. During this time, I created and taught art lessons for children ages 5 - 10, assisted with outreach into the public school systems, and designed on-site signage, as well as a map of the museum used by docents. The experience that I gained during my internship enabled me to receive a part-time position at the Cummer, teaching children ages 6-12 on art featured in the museum.
My BFA concentration was in Scientific Illustration. Partnering with our newly developed Marine Biology program at Flagler College, the semester transformed into capturing marine specimens on local excursions in photographs, and the process of learning, developing and succeeding in drawing these creatures on large sheets of paper, which were critiqued throughout the course. Ultimately, this led to the grand finale of three, six-foot wide large scale graphite pencil drawings featured at the Crisp Ellert art museum. I was honored to be interviewed, filmed and featured on the home page of the Flagler College website in February 2015.
Upon finishing my BFA, I pushed myself to expand my knowledge outside the art & design realm; which turned into a position as the Graphic Designer within the Marketing department for Carlisle Interconnect Technologies for over 2 years, a commercial aerospace wire and cable company. I designed all sales collateral, trade show booth graphics, and internal wall displays. Searching for new opportunities - I worked at Majority Strategies for a year, a Republican Mailer Marketing agency. I am coming up on my one year with Nivel as a Graphic Designer, where I assist with social media, website graphics, and social media. I am currently pursuing my personal interest
