Brand and identity
Bio I am an idea generator with an infectious passion for design, who builds and motivates dynamic teams to solve design problems in unexpected, original ways. When it comes to smart design, I sees things differently, so I do things differently. I believe in taking a fresh look at creative, which is why people always ask if my glasses are upside-down. That’s what it takes to stand out – and leave a lasting impression. My background includes roles leading designers, developers and writers as Creative Director with companies large and small, including c|change, inc., Vis-à-vis Creative, Revelry Agency, with my early career as a Graphic Designer with IBM. Mentorship is the foundation of my leadership style. In 2012, I founded the Chicago chapter of SheSays, providing mentoring opportunities and educational / networking events for women in the creative industry. I develop topics for events and choose influential speakers, orchestrate event execution and lead social media strategy. Just recently I was appointed to the Board of Directors for AIGA Chicago, the professional association for design, as the Mentor Chair. My team will be running their Fall and Spring mentor program with 20+ mentors and 160+ mentees. Investing in people is my business. I hope to have the opportunity to invest in yours.
