I grew up in Pittsburgh, PA. At Lafayette College in Easton, PA, I earned a degree in English with a creative writing concentration. Because I had completed the requirements early, I pursued and earned a second degree in Art with a Studio concentration focused on graphic design, and I studied abroad in Ireland for a year. I was actively involved in theater, competitive ultimate frisbee, and many other student organizations.
Upon graduating in 2011, I joined a creative firm in Pittsburgh called ClearBrands as a Project Manager. It is a small creative house primarily established in developing branding for start-up companies and identity-pivoting for older businesses. I learned to simplify complex business strategies and package them into a unique process and identity. One of my largest and favorite projects was the development of Code 7 Interview because I was able to utilize my breadth of skills including copywriting, graphic design, video editing, and branding.
Eager to return to eastern Pennsylvania, I became a copywriter-in-training at Launch International in Doylestown, PA. Launch International is a content-focused business primarily established in creating resources for the technology industry, and I advanced my technical writing skills.
Currently, I am a Project Manager at Northstar Creative, a boutique creative firm primarily established in delivering digital medical education programs and developing creative for pharmaceutical companies. In this role, I’m able to wear a wide variety of hats all over the creative spectrum including project management, website design, app development, graphic design, social media, copywriting, presentation creation, live event management, video and audio editing, and team-leading. This variety has allowed me to develop my collaborative and creative skills deeply, and I’ve contributed to projects from concept to completion.
Outside of work, I pursue artistic endeavors such as painting, drawing, sculpting, and writing short stories. I enjoy traveling, playing competitive ultimate frisbee, and volunteering for dogs looking for loving forever homes. I currently live in Conshohocken, PA.
