My passion for helping others has been a driving force throughout my life. From a young age, I have been dedicated to environmental conservation and social justice. Initially pursuing a political science major at Saint Louis University, I soon realized my true calling lay in the creative arts. This led me to transfer to Southern Illinois University Edwardsville (SIUE), where I earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Graphic Design in the spring of 2024.

My Story

During my time at SIUE, I navigated the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, completing online coursework and remote graphic design internships with the Association of People Supporting Employment First and BroadFutures, Inc. These experiences allowed me to form valuable connections and learn about effective professional communication. My resilience and adaptability during this period underscored my commitment to my craft and my ability to thrive in difficult circumstances.

I have just completed a summer internship in account management at New Honor Society in St. Louis, further enhancing my industry experience. My skills encompass social media management, social media design, identity design, publications, printmaking, foil imaging, and glasswork. I was actively involved in her university community, serving as Vice President of SIUE Print Council and participating in the Society of Edwardsville Glass Artists (SEGA).

Passionate about using her creative talents to help others, I aspire to work with mission-driven clients who are dedicated to making the world a better place. I believe in the power of good design to make brands more inclusive and accessible and aim to use my creative and innovative skills to make a meaningful difference in people's lives.
