Welcome! It’s always a pleasure to meet new friends. Grab a cup of joe and let’s get to know one another.
Hospitality is kind of my thing; my family loves hosting parties! Sometimes really big parties. We make people feel comfortable, cherished, and involved (no one gets left out). I know how to have fun, whether enjoying an afternoon with a book, traveling the world, or playing tabletop games. But I also know how to write a business plan, design a marketing campaign, orchestrate set changes, and develop a corporate brand. I tend to be a creative problem solver, though perhaps my strongest point is identifying where the problem truly lies.
My first degree from the University of Washington (UW) was a BA in English. As I often tell people, studying English teaches people to think, to analyze data and determine what is actually there and how significant it is. Several years later, I followed the English degree with a Masters of Communication in Digital Media, also from UW. During and since those degrees I have working in the medical field, in publishing, and local television among other fields. I’ve spent a lot of time working with start ups and small business owners (including freelancers).
Having settled in Idaho in 2013, I am continuing to help other professionals be successful through graphic design, strategic consultation, editing, and other services.
On the side, I write my own stories, cook, play games, and spend time with friends and family.
Thanks for visiting! I hope to meet you in person soon.
All the best,
