Who I Am
I work as a freelance graphic designer and writer who excels at making content that is easy to navigate and understand. My work has been published most recently by The Financial Diet, Student Loan Planner, and Women’s Money Talk. I am also the co-founder of His and Her FI, a Plutus Award finalist for Best Family Finance blog and Best Financial Independence podcast.
My career is rooted in education and the arts. I worked at Marylhurst University as a gallery assistant, curation assistant and art department coordinator. This gave me a solid background in visual communications and the importance of content curation.
After earning my Bachelors of Fine Arts and Masters of Arts in Teaching, I taught high school , graphic design, and photography. I elevated the graphic design program to be regionally recognized, wrote and received a grant to open the first-ever gallery space, lead and organized the participation in a global photography project in the community, and founded an annual art exhibition – all within a span of four years.
As a professional freelancer, my belief is that whatever I create should be both impactful and easily digestible. I write most often about personal finance and the way people choose to work and play. I create graphics for brands, bloggers, and agencies that align with their written content. It’s my all-time favorite thing when I can combine both my writing and graphic design skills for a client.
