I work as a visual designer, website manager and art director specializing in higher education, nonprofits and small business. My visual art is my contemplative practice and my way of keeping my imagination vibrant. This site is a mix of my professional and personal work… The stuff that makes me the happiest and most complete.

Over the years, I have worked with many organizations including the University of Pennsylvania, Drexel University, Chestnut Hill College, Rutgers University, Temple University, Health Access California, YouthFarm (Minnesota), Harbage Consulting, the Hagley Museum and Library, Student Diplomacy Corps, CeaseFirePA and Strive Prep Charter Schools. Projects have ranged from comprehensive website design, to branding and collateral for special events, to fundraising campaigns, and beyond.

My professional background is diverse, and it includes 6+ years as a digitization librarian split between a major design firm and a university, 7+ years as an independent designer, 2 years branding a Chef, and post-baccalaureate training in fine arts.

I have a Master of Library Science degree with extensive training in archives, special collections, image handling, digitization, and management of visual collections. Prior to that, I learned to express myself visually as a contemplative practice while studying at Naropa University for my undergraduate degree.

I spend my free time painting, hiking, meditating and dancing. I have 2 beautiful children with my husband of many years. We live in the wooded Mount Airy section of Philadelphia.

Adam Barley, totally paraphrased: We spend so much time trying to be *something* when we could just be *everything*. Only when we are everything will we have glimpses of being nothing.

And I love rock n roll. Nothing is better than a night out at a good show. Take a peek at who I’ve seen over the years!
