I graduated from UCLA with a degree in Painting/Sculpture/Graphic Arts and then got a second degree in Photographic Illustration with a specialization in Multi-Image Presentations. This ultimately led me to an airline marketing position where I spent 25 years working on advertising and promotions, corporate identity and branding, product development, customer research, and aircraft interiors. An interesting fact about me is that B/E Aerospace once asked Richard Branson to move from a seat at the Aircraft Interiors Expo so I could try it out.

Favorite Song: Free Bird by Lynyrd Skynyrd

Favorite Color: Deep Periwinkle, PMS 17-3932 

Favorite Hobby: Sailing – I love to be on the water. I first learned to sail at the Annapolis Sailing School in St. Croix and then enjoyed gunkholing on the Chesapeake Bay in our CAL 27. The hardest thing I had to do when I relocated to Phoenix for my job was selling our sailboat, Aeolus IV!

I have been at SEKISUI KYDEX for 5 years and graduated in 2015 from the Art Institute of York PA with a bachelor's degree in Web Design & Interactive Media. My love for all things digital design started in High School on the Yearbook Committee where we were introduced to the Adobe Suite, creative writing, layout design, and taking photos at all school events. I knew then and there that design was my passion and exactly what I wanted to do with my life – here I am at SEKISUI KYDEX doing just that!

I volunteer at the local cat café and help to foster kittens/cats until they find their forever homes. I also serve as the Marketing Chair and on the Board at our local Children's Museum in Bloomsburg. Both are great local resources and ways I can give back to the community I know, love, and grew up in.
